The Victorian College of the Arts Secondary School Council works with the Principal to oversee governance of the school according to the School Accountability and Improvement Framework. This involves overseeing the development of a School Strategic Plan and Annual Implementation Plan, evaluation and reporting on progress, managing risk and conducting specialist reviews when required. Council’s Standing Orders specify that Council Members may be staff, parents or people co-opted for their insight and expertise. More than one-third of elected members must be parents, emphasising the importance of parental involvement and insights in shaping the direction of the school. School council elections are held in February or March each year and ballots are held only if more people nominate as candidates than there are vacancies.
