In line with Department of Education policy, SIDE has contributions, charges and fees.
High School and Senior High School Enrolments
Schools will be invoiced for the learning area and course costs for each student who is enrolled.
Since 2010, senior high schools, high schools and agricultural colleges with Year 11 and 12 students enrolled in subjects through SIDE have contributed funds to access those courses. Based on the assumption that the full load for a Year 11 and 12 student is, on average five (5) year long courses, each course being studied through SIDE has been determined as 0.2 FTE of a student load.
School enrolments will be cross referenced with SIDE data in March 2017. The school contribution will be based on 0.2 FTEof a student load per subject enrolled at SIDE in 2017. Adjustments for these amounts will be made to one line budgets.
