A size adjustment allocation will apply to all specialist schools with a school aged enrolment of less than the enrolment threshold.


The following school types are eligible for the size adjustment supplementation:

  • Day special
  • Special development


[Enrolment Threshold - Enrolment] × Rate

  • Where total enrolments at the school are less than 45.
  • The maximum amount funded is limited to $115,860

Rates - 2020

  • Per student rate: $5,077
  • Enrolment threshold: 45
  • Maximum funded: $115,860

Size adjustment supplementation is determined once a year based on regionally approved pro-rata enrolment details recorded in the Program for Students with Disabilities Management System (PSDMS) and established eligibility as at February Census.
