Education (Update) Amendment Act 2017

18 Section 11P amended (Secretary may direct board to enrol applicant)


Replace section 11P(2) with:


The Secretary may direct the board of a State school to enrol an applicant whose application for enrolment it has declined if he or she is satisfied that—


the board has declined the application on the ground that the applicant is not living in the school’s home zone, but in fact he or she is living in the zone; or


not giving a direction would be so disadvantageous to the applicant that overriding the enrolment scheme is justified.


The power in subsection (2)(b) may only be exercised in exceptional circumstances.


In section 11P(4), replace “an integrated school” with “a State integrated school”.
