Independent Public School Application

Lawnton State School is a well-established, high-performing school with a strong improvement agenda supported by a dedicated and expert teaching team. There is an opportunity for at least 120 schools (more than 50% of schools in the state) to become Independent Public Schools in the period 2013 to 2016. Lawnton is contemplating applying to be selected for this opportunity.
Becoming an Independent Public School (IPS) will enable the Lawnton State School community to have greater autonomy and ownership of decisions which affect it, and more funding, while maintaining the same core values, beliefs, priorities and support of the overarching existing Queensland state schooling system.
To facilitate discussion and to answer any questions parents may have, Kylie Smith will be available in the parent room at the following times:
9-10am Monday 26 August;
2-3pm Wednesday 28 August;
9:30am (after parade Friday 30 August).
We would love to hear your thoughts. Alternatively, feel free to phone the school office to talk to Kylie.
