Devolved School Management (DSM) scheme

Aberdeen City Council is seeking your views on a new Aberdeen DSM Scheme Draft for Consultation final version which, once approved, will be effective from August 2020.  This scheme sets out the arrangements for how funding for education is managed and makes clear the roles and responsibilities of headteachers and the local authority. A range of people have worked together to write the Draft Guidance and we are now seeking the views of parents/carers, children and young people on the scheme.
