Geoff Provest MP

A TOTAL of 21 Tweed public schools have been named to receive a share of $2 million in additional needs-based funding in 2017, Member for Tweed Geoff Provest announced this morning.

Mr Provest MP said the funding was made possible by NSW signing the Gonski agreement and local public schools will receive $2,078,460 in additional needs-based funding, from a state-wide funding pool of $219 million.

“The NSW Government is delivering on its commitment to deliver additional school funding based on student need,” Mr Provest said.

“These extra resources go directly to our Tweed schools allowing principals to better meet the unique needs of their students and the school community.

“I have seen schools in the Tweed electorate employ additional teachers with expertise to assist students who need extra support in key learning areas like literacy and numeracy.”

In NSW public schools, needs-based funding is distributed under the Resource Allocation Model (RAM), which uses information about student need to deliver resources where they are needed most, consistent with the Gonski recommendations.

A total of 21 schools will receive increased funding allocations in the Tweed electorate.
