In Queensland, community language schools (CLS) that wish to apply for a grant are required to enter into an agreement with the Department of Education.
In October each year, currently funded CLS will receive an online application that will determine their eligibility for a grant for the following year. CLS who are deemed eligible for a grant will then receive the new Service Agreement. CLS need to provide the required documentation in the following time frames:
- Online application — to be completed and submitted by the end of October each year.
- Service agreement — to be completed and submitted in December of each year for grant payment in February following the grant period.
- Student attendance roll — student attendance should be entered throughout the year and will be used to calculate the grant payment in February of the following year. Student attendance rolls for 2020 to be completed and submitted by the following dates:
- Term 1 – 26 April 2020
- Term 2 – 19 July 2020
- Term 3 – 11 October 2020
