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.
