Independent Member for Alfred Cove, Dr Janet Woollard MP, is calling on the State Government to review funding and care level assessments for students with disabilities.  This follows a recent incident in which the Department of Education’s Schools Plus  funding program rejected the application for full time care for a kindergarten student who requires this support to ensure she is safe at school and able to interact with other children and staff.
Dr Woollard said the current system was onerous, time consuming, difficult and has the potential to inadvertently exclude students with disabilities who require significant care.
