The 2010-11 estimated outcome and the 2011-12 budget is provided in 2011-12 Budget Paper 4 page 320. The budget for (a), (b) and (c) forms part of Output Class 1 in the forward estimates.
2) The ACT Government has budgeted $49.2m in grants to ACT non-government schools in 2011-12, and $1.8m of this funding is specifically targeted to support students with a disability. The majority of grant funding to ACT non-government schools is provided to support the overall operations of schools, which allows schools the flexibility to use this funding as prioritised by the school, including for the provision of additional support for students with disabilities. Furthermore, these grants are in addition to the $148m provided by the Commonwealth Government to ACT non-government schools in 2011-12, which may also be used to support children with disabilities.
The following table provides budgeted ACT grants to ACT non-government schools for 2011-12 to 2013-14.
