Notice to Schools 49/2020 – 17 April 2020

COVID-19: Support and information for schools and educators

Principals/Directors, VCE and VCAL Coordinators and primary and secondary school teachers

We appreciate and support your hard work and initiative in ensuring that Victorian students achieve the best-possible learning outcomes outside of the classroom during this time. As the situation progresses, we will provide you with the latest information and updates to deliver and administer your teaching programs.

VCE and VCAL leaders webinars

We are running a series of webinars to provide advice to senior secondary principals, teachers and educators in Term 2. The first webinars are targeted to principals on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 April 2020, followed by study-specific webinars for teachers and educators. Each webinar will include an introduction from our CEO, Sharyn Donald, presentations from our curriculum and assessment experts, and an opportunity to ask them questions.

Registration is available on our website.

Interactive communications channels

F–10 and senior secondary teachers may also access two new interactive communication channels from 27 April 2020. These will enable teachers to ask questions and receive answers in real time from our subject matter experts across the organisation.

A user acceptance form and Forum Community Guidelines will be available to download from VASS. VASS Administrators can email this form to relevant teachers and educators so they can complete, obtain their Principal’s endorsement and submit the registration form, ready to take part.

During this time, it is more important than ever to encourage your teachers and educators to support each other by sharing information and communicating with us when required.

Action required

Principals/Directors should ensure that VCE and VCAL Coordinators and primary and secondary school teachers are made aware of these initiatives.

Critical dates

  • Webinars for senior secondary principals will be held on Thursday 23 April and Friday 24 April 2020.
  • The new interactive communication channels will be available to F-10 and senior secondary teachers from Monday 27 April 2020.
