In line with Department of Education policy, SIDE has contributions, charges and fees.
High School and Senior High School Enrolments
Senior high schools, high schools and agricultural colleges with Year 11 and 12 students enrolled in subjects through SIDE are required by DoE to contribute 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 of each year. The school contribution will be based on 0.2 FTE of a student load per subject enrolled at SIDE. Adjustments for these amounts will be made to one line budgets.
