The AISNSW Governance Resource Manual (GRM) was developed to assist member schools meet their registration requirements in relation to governance: standards for the ‘proper governance’ of independent schools were introduced by Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES) in October 2014.
On 1 January 2017 NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) replaced BOSTES. NESA has made a number of revisions to its registration requirements for non-government schools, including changes to Section 3.9 of its manual, Management and Operation of the School.
The AISNSW Governance Resource Manual has been updated to reflect the changes in NESA requirements.
The GRM has also be restructured to help schools efficiently manage the process of documenting their policies and procedures in relation to governance. This new structure does not remove the necessity for schools to contextualise their governance processes. However, the revised GRM provides a more structured framework enabling schools to demonstrate ‘evidence of compliance’ in an orderly sequence following the NESA requirements.
