                                              STUDENT RESOURCE SCHEME

A Message from the Principal

To assist and support parents and carers with the costs associated with quality educational
opportunities, Dakabin State High School (“the School”) operates a Student Resource
Scheme (“SRS” or “the Scheme”). For an annual fee of $110.00 the Scheme offers an
economical alternative for the provision of high quality resources for students to use while
attending school. The Scheme also provides reduced fees for specific subjects for Years 11
and 12.

SRS is organised by the School, operates under the policy and guidelines of the
Department of Education and Training (DET), and is endorsed annually by the P&C
Association. Participation in the Scheme is optional; however, before you make your
decision, please read the contents of this document to see the benefits of joining the
Scheme.

Payment options are also available. Please complete the SRS Participation Agreement Form
to formalize your participation in the Scheme and to advise of your payment intentions.

Should you be experiencing financial difficulties, please contact the Business Manager to
discuss your payment options.

Books and resources are purchased in bulk and in advance, to secure discounts and to
ensure students have what they need to start the year and each additional term.

A parent who does not wish to join the Scheme is responsible for providing the
student with the items on this list that would otherwise have been provided to the
student by the Scheme, to enable the student to engage with the curriculum. Only
participants of the SRS scheme are eligible to select subjects requiring additional
fees.

I look forward to your support in ensuring your student starts day one prepared and
resourced for the academic challenges ahead.

Regards

Katrina Larsen
Principal
Statement of Intent

A parent is directly responsible for providing the student with textbooks and other resources for a student's use
while attending school. As a service to assist parents with the cost of these educational resources, the school
may choose to operate a Student Resource Scheme.

The purpose of the Scheme is to provide the parent with a cost effective alternative to purchasing textbooks,
resources, consumables and/or materials from elsewhere, through reduced prices gained from the school's
bulk purchasing processes.

An SRS enables a parent to enter into a written agreement (Participation Form) with the School that, in return
for payment of a specified annual participation fee ($110.00) provides for the participating student's temporary
use of prescribed textbooks and other resources and/or for the purchase by the parent of consumables and
materials for the student's use.

The Scheme provides the entire package for the specified participation fee and is not available in parts unless
specifically provided for by the school in the Scheme fee structure. The Scheme is to be referred to by the
school as the Student Resource Scheme, regardless of the extent of goods and services provided by the
Scheme, for example textbooks or hire of musical instruments. The operation of the Scheme is supported
annually by the Parents and Citizens' Association (P&C).

Participation in the Scheme is voluntary, and no obligation is placed on a parent to participate. A parent's
decision to participate is based on consideration of the value afforded by the Scheme. If a parent chooses to
participate in the Scheme and completes a Participation Agreement Form then a participation fee ($110.00)
will be due and payable by the parent.

On lodgement of the completed Participation Agreement Form with the school and payment of the
participation fee in accordance with the agreed payment arrangement, the school shall provide the items to
the student when due for the student's use. Payment of the participation fee by the parent is a requirement for
continued participation in the Scheme. An unpaid fee will be subject to the school's debt recovery processes.

A parent who does not wish to join the Scheme is responsible for providing the student with the items
that would otherwise have been provided to the student by the Scheme as detailed on the
Textbooks/Resources Requirements List to enable the student to engage with the curriculum. Parents
of secondary school-aged students who choose not to participate in the Scheme will receive the textbook and
resource allowance directly from the school.

The SRS includes textbooks and/or educational resources that, in the absence of the Scheme, would normally
be purchased by the parent for the student's use at school. The Scheme may include printed material such as
workbooks and worksheets, produced by the school in lieu of a prescribed textbook. All items provided for
temporary student use by the Scheme remain the property of the Scheme and shall be returned at the end of
the education program or school year or when the student leaves the school, whichever is the earlier. Items
provided for temporary student use shall be kept in good condition by the student. Where an issued item is
lost or negligently damaged or not returned, the parent will be invoiced and required to pay the replacement
cost of the item.

The SRS does not include:
   • Voluntary financial contribution requests to supplement the instruction, administration and facilities for
      the education of the student at the school
   • student internet access (which is covered by a separate budget)
   • resources funded by the State through grant funding to provide a core educational service
   • optional school activities such as excursions, camps, performances and formals.

Before a student can be considered for participation in an optional school activity (extracurricular), a
parent who has joined the Scheme is expected to have:
   • fully paid the SRS participation fee, or
   • paid the SRS participation fee up to and including the term in which the school activity takes
       place, or
   • made regular ongoing payments towards the SRS annual participation fee, as previously
       arranged with the Business Manager.

Parents experiencing financial hardship are encouraged to contact the Business Manager to discuss payment
or resourcing options that may be available to accommodate their circumstances.

SRS 2021
This document includes important information about the fees and inclusions for the SRS. If you have previously
opted in to the SRS, your participation is assumed for the remainder of your child's enrolment, unless you inform
the school otherwise by completing a new participation agreement form. If you are a new parent to the school,
this information will assist you in making a decision as to whether you wish to participate in the SRS.
What is provided by the Queensland Government?
The Queensland Government supports children’s education by providing funding for instruction (teachers),
facilities (school grounds and buildings, internet), and administration (staff to run the school). Funding for
schools does not extend to individual student resources such as textbooks, equipment for personal use, and
many items used by the student in the classroom.
The SRS helps parents to source these resources. The school can purchase resources at lower rates due to its
bulk buying power. Resources such as textbooks or musical instruments that will be used over a period of time
are hired to students to further reduce costs for families. Participating in the SRS also offers a convenient way
for parents to source the items that their child needs for school, and ensures that all students have access to the
same standard of resources.
The types of resources that will be included are:
    Owned by the student – eg: student diary – once provided, these items are retained by the student
       and used at their discretion.
    Hired to the student for a specific duration of time – eg: textbooks or musical instruments – these
       items will need to be returned to the school in reasonable condition at the end of the hire period or if the
       student leaves the school.
    Used in class – eg: stationery, timber, material, workbooks – these items will be used in class. Finished
       products that are created from these resources will generally come home with the student.
The Fee
This is a flat fee calculated from core subjects for the Year 11 cohort and ensures value is provided to all
students, with additional higher fees charged for students accessing higher cost subjects. Please note that if
you are not participating in the SRS program, then internally subsidised certificate courses are charged at a
higher rate. If you are not satisfied that the SRS fee represents good value for money based on the inclusions
(over the page), you may choose not to participate in the SRS. If that is the case, please complete a new
Participation Agreement Form, indicating that you no longer wish to participate. If you choose not to participate,
you will be provided with a detailed list of resources that you will need to provide for the student.
The TRA
The Department of Education provides a Textbook and Resource Allowance (TRA) to assist parents with the
cost of textbooks and other education resources for eligible Year 7 to 12 students. For those students who are
eligible to receive the TRA, the TRA will be applied to reduce the cost of participation as shown in the table
below. Thus the SRS invoice you receive will be the full cost of participation in the SRS minus the TRA already
held at the school. Please be aware that there may be two lines of charges on your invoice, indicating the GST
inclusive and GST exclusive fees, depending on the resources supplied by the SRS.
Cost Breakdown
The diagrams below reflect how the TRA has been deducted from the SRS fee for eligible students who have
opted in to the Curriculum SRS.

Financial Difficulty
If you would like to participate, but are experiencing financial difficulties, please contact the school to arrange an
appointment to discuss options. Any information that you provide will be confidential.
Release of Resources
Resources will not be distributed until the full or first payment has been paid to the school. Any unpaid invoices
will be managed according to the Department’s Debt Management Procedure and may results in the student
being excluded from the scheme and/or from participating in extracurricular activities until payments are made.
Return of Hired Resources
A repair or replacement cost will be charged to the parent for any items that are damaged or not returned.
Contact Us
If you have any queries regarding the SRS and its inclusions, please contact and arrange an appointment with
the Student Resource Officer at: srs@dakabinshs.eq.edu.au.

  worksheets and assignment task sheets to allow for delivery of and assessment in their
  subjects.

Exclusions
   These fees do not include user-pay charges that occur throughout the year (school sports, excursions, trips and
    camps, formal, senior jersey, etc). To be eligible for user-pay activities, all other curriculum fees and charges are
    required to be up-to-date. Payment of a fee does not confirm eligibility for activities, as participation is contingent on
    all other curriculum fees and charges remaining up-to-date.
   These fees do not include most consumable stationery items (exercise books, pens, glue sticks, etc). Basic
    stationery items are available for purchase in packs or separately through the uniform shop, or alternatively may be
    sourced from a supplier of your choice. (See back page for stationery list)
Why pay 2021 SRS fees early?
Parents who pay full fees on or before 11 December 2020 will be eligible for an early payment discount. This discount
reflects the savings made to administer the Scheme. Early payment of fees is also encouraged so student learning
materials and books may be purchased early and discounts secured through early payment and bulk ordering.
