Guidelines for Types within Level B
The Head of School types within Level B continues the application of the current practice for determination of responsibility loadings. This is based on the relationship and intersects between Staff (FTE) and Student Load (EFSTU), and introduces a component for budget size.
 
The new application is as follows:
  • Type A – Budgets up to $3.5 million
  • Type B – Budgets from $3.6 million - $6.5 million
  • Type C – Budgets from $6.6 million - $10.9 million
  • Type D – Budgets from $11 million - $15.9 million
  • Type E – Budgets above $16 million.
