Kimberley Schools Project
The Kimberley Schools Project (KSP) will provide $25 million of Royalties for Regions funding to accelerate and intensify existing strategies to improve educational outcomes, and so underpin broader economic and social development in the region.
Whilst there are pockets of educational excellence in the Kimberley, student outcomes lag behind those of other regions. In order to close the gap in educational outcomes, the project seeks to: empower communities outside the school gates and more effectively target resources to teachers and principals inside the school gates.
The need for the project was initially identified in the Kimberley Development Commission’s 2036 and Beyond: A Regional Investment Blueprint for the Kimberley. The project contributes towards the priorities identified in the Department of Regional Development’s Regional Development Strategy 2016-2025 to develop people’s capability to drive growth and prosperity. The project is also one of ten priority actions in the Regional Services Reform Unit’s Resilient Families, Stronger Communities roadmap.
