Establish purpose

Discuss and establish the purpose for forming a LCO.


Like the philosophical context, a clear articulation of the purpose of the LCO needs to be given. This should clearly place the needs of students first, reflecting how the establishment of the LCO will provide better educational opportunities for these students while they remain in their local school.
Considerations here include:

  • Is there a particular group of students/teachers as the benefit target? (e.g. year12/13, disadvantaged, poor literacy, gifted/extension, ICT in the classroom)?
  • Is there a long-term need, or is this only a short-term solution?
  • How might the community develop beyond the immediate goals?
  • How will the establishment of this LCO contribute to the charter goals of the participating schools?
