The Department owns a limited number of residential properties in remote rural communities across Victoria.
These 'teacher housing' residences are allocated to departmental teaching staff by the local host-school principal in consultation with the Department's Infrastructure and Sustainability Division Property Management Unit.
The properties are provided by the Department to assist rural schools in attracting new teaching staff to their communities.
Forms and guidelines
The Department has developed a suite of documents to assist both the principal and business managers of host schools in managing the properties and Tenant Guidelines for teachers when tenanting a property.
