What do you think about our proposal to introduce a 3 year transitional period for eligible families?
Year 7 will be taught in all public high schools from term 1, 2022.
We are testing the possibility of providing eligible families with a choice to keep their year 7 child in primary school, if their primary school is located more than 20 kilometres by road from its nearest area or high school, for a transitional period of 3 years.
Some of the questions we would like you to consider include:
- Is the 3-year period an appropriate length of time?
- What support do you think you might need to help your family with the transition?
- Would you keep your year 7 child in the primary school setting? Why?
