Notes:

  1. Activity measures have been discontinued in the SDS to accurately reflect the government's transition to service standards with greater focus on efficiency and effectiveness.
  2. The number of applications is subject to strategic decisions of school governing bodies.
  3. A type of education is defined in s.12 of the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2001 to mean primary education, secondary education or special education.
  4. Attributes are defined in section 16 (3) of the Education (Accreditation of Non-State Schools) Act 2001 and include items such as governing body, the curriculum model the school is to follow, boarding facilities, etc.
  5. This measure indicates the percentage of non-state schools that have completed a cyclic review in the previous five years.
  6. This measure is for compliance notices, show cause notices, and notices to cancel accreditation, and it is not appropriate to set a target, as this will be determined solely by due process and reported as Estimated Actual for 2009-10.
  7. This new performance measure was due to be reported in the 2009 -10 DET Annual Report. However, no applications for re-registration were approved in the reporting year due to delays in amendments to the Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000.
