Extra $37 million for Victorian Government students with disability

More than 33,000 students with disability in Victorian government schools will have greater access to classroom support and specialised equipment thanks to $37 million in funding from the Gillard Government’s More Support for Students with Disabilities initiative.

Parliamentary Secretary for School Education, Senator Jacinta Collins, said this funding is in addition to the previously announced funding to Independent and Catholic Schools, bringing a total of $47.8 million to help better support Victorian students with disability.

“This funding, part of our overall $200 million national initiative, will provide much-needed specialised support and assistance to thousands of students in government schools across Victoria,” Senator Collins said.
