The Policy and Procedure Register (PPR) provides access to all Department of Education Policy Instruments. The register demonstrates transparency and accountability to promote understanding of how the Department of Education operates, and supports the principles of the Right to Information Act.
There are 5 key procedures in the PPR associated with student behaviour in Queensland state schools.
This suite of procedures, and associated forms and guidance materials, underwent a comprehensive review in 2019. A range of stakeholders were consulted as part of the review process, including teachers, principals, parents and students.
