Education—student behaviour

(Question No 426)

Mr Doszpot asked the Minister for Education and Training, upon notice, on 17 November 2009:

In relation to student behaviour management, how many student (a) transfers and (b) exclusions have been recorded by ACT schools, by school, for (i) February to December 2006, (ii) February to December 2007, (iii) February to December 2008 and (iv) February 2009 to date.

Mr Barr: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) (a) The transfer of a student is discussed with parents and negotiated at a school level. This is done to meet the needs of the student, their education and with the support of their family. Some transfers are also facilitated through the Department of Education and Training's central office

Fifty seven students have transferred from high schools to Connect10 programs to date during 2009:

Lake Ginninderra College - 20

Dickson College - 16

Lake Tuggeranong College - 21

(1) (b) (i) (ii) (iii) (iv) Generally, ACT public schools do not exclude students. Occasionally exclusion will occur following a student finding employment or from a specific school following a court order.

In early 2008, one student was excluded due to an employment opportunity and in 2009 one student was excluded from a particular school, following a court order and was re-engaged in an alternate school.

With the new learn/earn legislation students will no longer be excluded due to employment opportunities; they will seek an exemption from the chief executive.
