Independent Panel to Resolve School Disputes


Parents and students will now have a new independent umpire to help resolve disputes with their school.

A new Independent Panel for School Dispute Resolution will be established to help deal with complex complaints in Victorian government schools.

The Independent Panel will look at the most complex complaints that have not been able to be resolved locally.

That includes responses to bullying, access and inclusion issues, wellbeing and engagement issues, management of medical issues, and appropriate settings for students at risk or disengaged students.
