National School Resourcing Board


The Australian Government established the National School Resourcing Board (the Board) to provide greater independent oversight over Commonwealth school funding arrangements, in line with recommendations of the 2011 Review Funding for Schooling.

The Board is responsible for undertaking reviews of different parts of the funding model under the Australian Education Act 2013 (the Act) and the Australian Education Regulation 2013, including the annual review of the state and territory funding contributions under section 22A of the Act. These reviews help ensure public confidence in the funding model and ensure states, territories and other approved authorities comply with their obligations under the Act.

Over time, the reviews undertaken by the Board will help to ensure the funding model is using the best available data and methodologies, as well as making sure funding is used in line with the Act.

Membership of the Board was announced on 1 November 2017.

The Board members as at 4 September 2020 are:

  • Mr Michael Chaney AO (Chair)
  • Professor Deborah Terry AO (Deputy Chair)
  • Professor Natalie Brown
  • Professor Stephen Lamb
  • Professor Ken Smith
  • Dr Alison Taylor
  • Ms Audrey Jackson AM

The Board is currently undertaking a Review of Regional Schooling Resource Standard Loadings. Future reviews will include examining approved authorities’ compliance with requirements under section 78 of the Act and the SRS indexation arrangements.
