Individual non-government schools: Notification of ‘responsible persons’

BOS 34/16

Who needs to read this notice:
Principals of individual non-government schools
Responsible Persons for individual non-government schools

Effective immediately
BOSTES published amendments to the Registered and Accredited Individual Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual ('the Manual') in January (see Official Notice 1/16). Section provides that, from Friday 1 July 2016, individual non-government schools must give online notification to BOSTES with details of ‘responsible persons’, including their:

  • name
  • role
  • date of commencing and ceasing as ‘responsible person’.

Notification should be made via RANGS Online > School Details, accessed using the school user ID and password. A step-by-step guide is available RANGS Online > Reference Documents. Notification of any changes to a school's 'responsible person' must be made within 28 days.

If you require assistance to access RANGS Online, please contact Senior Registration Officer, George Kelen on (02) 9367 8280.

Please note that in non-government school registration systems, the approved authority for a registration system is responsible for maintaining details of the 'responsible persons' for each member school (see section of the Registration Systems and Member Non-government Schools (NSW) Manual).
