School Policy & Advisory Guide

Policy and advice for schools

Policy and advice for schools on governance and operational policies, management, human resources and finance.

The School Policy and Advisory Guide (formerly known as the Victorian Government Schools Reference Guide) provides Victorian government schools with quick and easy access to governance and operational policies and advice. It complements the Department’s extensive web resources and directs users to relevant web content and supplementary information.

The Guide’s information comes from a range of legislative and regulatory requirements, primarily the Education and Training Reform Act 2006 and the Education and Training Reform Regulations 2007. Where appropriate a specific web page will identify its related legislation or regulation.

The Guide's content is subject to ongoing change and users are encouraged to regularly visit this website for the latest information.

Note: Content is provided by individual offices within the Department; who are responsible for its accuracy. If you have concerns about the information accuracy or require further advice please email:
