Everyone aware that www.myschool.edu.au will open on the 28th Jan 2010?
Personally, i would also like data regarding graduate destinations, ICT
ratios, co-curricular (eg clubs) availability, perhaps average fees per
Year Level, and certainly staff turn-over regards potential enrollments.
This site is sure to be a talking point on the first day back next year!
"An introduction to ACARA information sessions on the My School website
and the release of the draft Australian curriculum, which will be held in
all states and territories during February and March 2010"
My School F A C T S H E E T December 2009
The My School website provides profles of almost 10,000 Australian
schools that can be searched by the schools location, sector, or name.
The website provides statistical and contextual information, as well as
NAPLAN (www.naplan.edu.au) results that can be compared with those of
statistically similar schools across Australia.
The information will be published on 28th January 2010.
Each school will have a profle page which will include:
a short description of the school
number of students
number of teachers
senior secondary school outcomes
school-level data about students backgrounds
school Index of Community Socio-Educational Advantage (ICSEA) value
a link to the schools website and, where appropriate, a link to the
schools governing body
school NAPLAN results compared with the national average and the
average results of statistically similar schools.
Other pages will show:
the percentage of students achieving at each band on NAPLAN tests
compared with the percentage of students at that band nationally and
in statistically similar schools
school results on NAPLAN compared with the results of up to 60
statistically similar schools
a list of up to 20 schools located nearest to the school selected
My School will enable you to:
access a snapshot of a school using nationally consistent indicators
compare the performance of a school with that of the average
performance of all schools in Australia and that of statistically
similar schools across Australia
search for schools nearby to the school displayed, with hyperlinks to
the profle page of that school
identify and learn about high-performing schools.
