Revised DEC timeline for 'New Model' 20 Nov 2012

Email 20 November 2012

To: NSW Teachers Federation Members
Officers, Consultants and Advisers Association (OCAA)

Dear Colleagues

Please see below a revised timeline for the DEC consultation and implementation on the 'New Model' of support for schools.  The timeline remains subject to change.

The Federation is meeting regularly with the Department regarding the consultation and implementation process and procedures. However, the need for the DEC to provide greater certainty for all those impacted as soon as possible has been raised again by the Federation.

The initial consultation period closes at COB today 20 November. OCAA members are reminded to CC submissions and other information to ocaa@nswtf.org.au .

Thank you to the many members who have already contacted the Federation with information from the field regarding the impacts of the proposals on support for schools and on members. The Federation relies on accurate information from members.

As demonstrated by the Community Day of Action events in Sydney and regionally last Sunday, the Federation remains firmly opposed to the cuts to public education by the State Government. Thank you to all the OCAA members who actively supported the action on Sunday.

Regards

David
