closed schools. Shade structures will be offered to ACT public schools in a similar process but playground equipment is unlikely to be offered due to current compliance standards and the cost effectiveness of its relocation and upgrading.

(3) The Department does not hold records of equipment itemised according to funding source. In general, once purchased for school use, equipment and resources are accessioned by the school and become ACT Department of Education and Training property. The same situation exists for resources purchased with Commonwealth funding.

(4) After schools were listed for closure, they were required to undertake a consultative process with their respective P&C groups to identify and dispose of any material belonging to them including equipment and resources. In the case of Commonwealth funded resources, there was no obligation to enter into consultation regarding its future use and the standard disposal process was applied.

(2) When will this review be made public.
