Community consultation on the future of local secondary education was open from 19 September until 18 October.
We are analysing your feedback and will report the findings to the advisory committee and local working groups preparing a recommendation for the Victorian Government.
We anticipate them making this recommendation early next year.

About the Project
The Victorian Government is developing a long-term plan to transform Shepparton’s education system. The Shepparton Education Plan will look at how we can improve education for young people from early learning, through primary and secondary school, and beyond.
We want to give students more options and opportunities, help young people transition through each stage of education, equip teachers with training and resources and improve school infrastructure.
In June, we asked you to help us understand the needs, challenges and aspirations of your community. We held nine workshops and focus groups, had over 2,000 visits to our website, and analysed more than 4,750 individual comments to ensure we heard what you had to say. We then released the comprehensive ‘What We Heard’ report and summary factsheet so that everyone could access the findings.
In September, we opened a four-week consultation about secondary education. The proposed options ranged from no change, through to truly transformational change. We also held another series of workshops and focus groups to get feedback. We’re currently analysing this feedback.
