Consultation continues on School Intake Area Maps

A second round of consultation has commenced across the state inviting further feedback from Tasmanian communities about government school intake areas.

Under the Hodgman majority Liberal Government's Plan parents will always be able to apply to their school of choice, outside their intake area, if capacity allows.

The review will not affect students who are already enrolled in a school before 2021, or their siblings, nor will it change the way schools enrol students who live outside their intake area.

The Proposed Intake Area Maps are based on feedback received from the community in the first round of consultation held in 2018.

It takes into account student enrolment patterns, residential developments, demographic data, public transport routes and road access.

The consultation period closes on Friday, 27 September 2019, for information visit www.education.tas.gov.au/about-us/school-directory/school-intake-area-maps.
