Now available: Schools’ 2020 capacity to contribute scores 26 May 2020

From 2020, a new Direct Measure of Income (DMI) of capacity to contribute (CTC) replaces the previous area-based socio-economic status (SES) score measure to determine the CTC for most non-government schools.

Schools’ 2020 capacity to contribute (CTC) scores have been determined and the Department of Education, Skills and Employment has provided written advice to approved authorities.

View your 2020 CTC scores in the Non-government schools’ 2020 CTC scores table.

The table provides information on why a school’s final CTC score may differ from the score as under the Regulation.

About the Direct Measure of Income (DMI)

The DMI is based on the median income of parents or guardians of students at a non-government school.

To support a smooth transition to the new DMI, in 2020 and 2021, schools will have their funding based on either their 2011 Census SES score, their 2016 Census SES score or their DMI score – whichever is the most financially beneficial.

The new direct measure will apply to all schools by 2022.

For more information about DMI calculations, please read our DMI factsheet.

For more information on 2020 capacity to contribute scores, the DMI methodology and the CTC review process is available on the department’s Quality Schools webpage.
