Submission: Future of Education: Partnerships between schools and community organisations

Publication date: 
December 2017

While schools play an important role in identifying and supporting young people who are at risk of not attaining an education, research finds that the not-for-profit community sector also has an important role.

In this submission to the ACT Government's Future of Education conversation, ACTCOSS recommends schools and local community service agencies be resourced to build strong collaborative relationships, with capacity to respond flexibly and share resources to improve educational outcomes for young people.
