Curriculum Council Amendment Bill 2011

Bill No.203
SynopsisThe purpose of this Bill is to amend the Curriculum Council Act 1997and certain other Acts as a consequence, and for related purposes. The Bill aims to: replace the Curriculum Council with a statutory body known as the School Curriculum and Standards Authority, with a structure and functions that highlight its role as a regulatory body with responsibilities for school curriculum, standards and assessment; minimise the potential for conflicts of interest inherent in the Act's current provisions, which do not separate the regulators of school curriculum, standards and assessment from the providers of schooling; identify the main functions of the Authority around a standards function and course development and student assessment functions and establish two statutory advisory committees for these purposes; adapt the functions of the new Curriculum and Standards Authority to the current and emerging needs of the education sector with respect to course development from K-12 and the reliable monitoring of standards of student achievement; and enable the Authority to prepare reports on the standards achieved in schools.
Status Assented to
