The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) is a joint state and federal government initiative.The Data Collection is an annual national count of the number of students provided with educational adjustments as a result of their disability as defined broadly under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA).The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability will provide Australian schools, parents, education authorities and the community with information about the number of students with disability in schools, where they are located and the adjustments they receive.
An information sheet will be mailed home to parents of students with disabilities over the next week. Please read this information carefully before making the decision to opt out of the data collection. (NB The NCCD involves collection of numbers only, no names are submitted.) Parents/Guardians wishing their student’s details not be included in the NCCD collection are to advise the school in writing by Friday 19th July, 2014.
