Perspectives on the My School website
ACARA commissioned Colmar Brunton to conduct research with parents, principals, partners, and parent and principal representative groups about the My School website.
The report states that, generally, parents appreciate having a range of information about schools available in the central online location. The report also shows My School is used by parents as part of a suite of information sources to make informed decisions about their child’s education.
The report states that, overall, My School provides information in one accessible place, in a format that is relatively easy to navigate and understand, but there is some scope to make improvements.
ACARA welcomes any research and advice that will improve the My School website. We have already acted on a number of the report’s findings. For example, we have created a new infographic that explains in plain English what ICSEA is, and the introduction video for the My School homepage has been updated to better explain the purpose of My School.
