School management restructure
MANAGEMENT of North Burnett schools will move from the Wide Bay region to the newly formed Central Queensland region following a restructure of the Department of Education.
The change was announced by Dave Manttan, the new Central Queensland executive director of schools, who met with the North Burnett Regional Council in December.
Mr Manttan said the change would take place this month and he would be visiting all schools in the North Burnett from March.
Councillors told Mr Manttan they were eager to see an improvement in the level of services at North Burnett schools to ensure students had access to the same educational opportunities as their city counterparts.
All schools in the North Burnett are now part of the Central Queensland region, with the exception of Monogorilby State School, which is in the Darling Downs South West Region.
The new Central Queensland region also includes Mackay, Rockhampton, Emerald and Longreach.
