In 2022, approximately $290 million will be allocated to Queensland state schools as part of the Investing for Success (I4S) program.
State schools will use I4S funding to support students to achieve improved outcomes across all stages of schooling.
I4S funding is in addition to the standard funding that each state school receives each year.
JPSS 2022 funding amount - $221 084
How is it calculated?
Each school's funding includes: a base component that is calculated using student enrolments and loading components to provide additional resources based on student and school characteristics.
Base amounts will be finalised using Day 8 2022 enrolment data. Preliminary estimated figures are provided using 2021 February enrolment information to enable schools to commence planning.
Loading components that contribute to your school’s 2022 I4S funding have been calculated and finalised using enrolment information collected in Semester 1, 2021. Finalising these inputs using 2021 data provides schools greater certainty about their I4S funding (about half the total amount is allocated through loadings) and will help plan staffing and services for 2022.
