School Councils & Non-Salary Budget (NSB)
The School Education Department provides school specific Non-Salary Budget (NSB) to school councils to cover the recurrent costs of schools and to support student learning. Non-Salary related finances are funneled through these councils, making them responsible and accountable for planning, managing and budgeting of these funds effectively. It is hoped that through this, the school community will feel empowered to use these resources to mend the teaching and learning process and the overall school environment.
As an initial step, SED, has devised a strategy to enhance the capacity of these councils and improve utilization of resources. The strategy involves briefing on the School Council Policy and creating awareness about its member’s, Head teacher’s and AEO’s roles and responsibilities through 3D video’s, 2D infographics and posters. This content is being disseminated through the School Council App, which can be accessed through the Android Tabs available with School Teachers.
