STAR funding rates
Operational funding is the money a board of trustees receives from the Government to implement the goals of the school's charter, and to run the school.
The Funding, Staffing and Allowances Handbook Chapter 1, Appendix 3 includes information on operational funding and its components. It includes STAR-related funding information including rates.
STAR funding is provided for a specific purpose, and should be used for that purpose alone.
- is a capped resource available to state and integrated schools
- is roll related, and year 11 to year 13+ students generate the funding pool
- goes into the school's operational grant, where it is tagged for the purposes of STAR
- calculations do not cover foreign fee-paying students and adult students.
