In 2014, the Queensland Government commenced the Great Results Guarantee (GRG), a four-year funding initiative to improve student outcomes. This program passes on to Queensland state schools funding provided by the Australian Government's Students First initiative.
For 2015 (the second year of the initiative) the Queensland Government is investing a total of $183 million in additional funding for state schools to improve student performance.
All Queensland state schools (including Independent Public Schools) will receive a share of the funding and will enter into an agreement that commits them to guarantee that every student will either:
- achieve the National Minimum Standard for literacy and numeracy for their year level or
- have an evidence-based plan, developed by the school, in place to address their specific learning needs.
We've included a link below to documents outlining the scope of each of our funding rounds.
