Student Transition Coordinator

The Student Transition Coordinator Elizabeth Smith will support the enrolment process.  She is available Monday and Wednesday and can be contacted directly through email at smith.elizabeth.a@edumail.vic.gov.au

Student Enrolment

All students at JSA must be funded under the PSD category of Autism Spectrum Disorder, and eligibility must be determined prior to enrolment.  Please refer to our Enrolment Policy for further information.   In addition, students must live within the school zone (referred to as the Designated Transport Area or DTA) to be eligible for enrolment.  Please see the link below to see if your residential address lies within our DTA.

Please note that the school is at capacity and has reached its ceiling as set by the NWR.  Places in year levels other than prep for the next academic year are not available at present.  Should one become available, those already on the prospective enrolment list will be considered.  At present our prospective enrolment list has over 80 students on it and less than a handful of positions become available each year due to student relocation or integration into mainstream settings.
