Census of Computers in Schools

From Term 1 2017, Victorian government and Catholic schools will use the new Victorian Curriculum F-10. Curriculum related information is currently being reviewed and may be subject to change.

​The curriculum computer to student ratio in Victorian government schools is currently 1:1.46 for primary schools and 1:0.94 for secondary schools.

This ratio is based on information provided by schools in the February 2016 Census of Computers in Schools. The 2016 result includes both School/State funded and Bring Your Own (BYOD) computers that are used by students, and excludes administration computers.

The Census of Computers in schools is held annually from the last school day of February. Collection of data is required to ensure accurate planning of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) provisioning. School specialist technicians assist the completion of the Census of Computers as part of the IT Asset Management system (ITAM) and the School ICTProgression Strategy (SIPS).
