In line with Department of Education policy, SIDE has contributions, charges and fees.

Year 7-10 Voluntary Contributions

Year 11 Subject Charges

Year 12 Subject Charges

School Based

  • High School and Senior High School Enrolments
    Schools are required to contribute funds to the Department of Education to access courses offered by SIDE, and schools will be invoiced for the learning area and course costs for each student who is enrolled.

    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 following the Semester 1 Census. The school contribution is based on 0.014 teacher FTE per student subject at the endorsed notional salary rate for a teacher. Adjustments for these amounts will be made to one line budgets.

  • District High Schools, Remote Community Schools and Primary Schools
    District High Schools and Remote Community Schools will be invoiced for the learning area and course costs for each student enrolment. Primary Schools enrolling secondary students negotiate payment arrangements directly with the SIDE Manager Business Operations. The default position is that SIDE invoices the school.
  • Course Costs for Years 7-12 in Government Schools
  • Non Government Schools
    All non government school student registrations through SIDE are to be charged at the full recovery rate.

    These rates per student are:

    • Years 7-10 is $806 per term per Learning Area for Mathematics, English, Science and Humanities and Social Sciences; and $806 per semester per subject for all other Learning Areas.
    • Senior Secondary course (or equivalent) is $3,384 per year.
  • Primary Languages
    A resource charge of $5 per student, per language will apply.
