Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Education and Training
The health, safety and wellbeing of Tasmanians is the Government’s number one priority as we face the challenges of COVID-19 together.
Refunding school levies paid to Government schools is one way we are trying to reduce financial pressures on parents and carers during this crisis.
The Government has fast tracked work to develop and implement a safe and secure process for parents/carers to provide their bank details to enable reimbursements directly into bank accounts.
From today until 1 May a simple online form and related instructions have been made available here: https://levyrebate.education.tas.gov.au
The online form can be completed on a computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone with internet capabilities. Safety and security steps have been built into this process to ensure complete confidentiality for parents/carers.
Once validation has occurred and the online form is completed and submitted the reimbursement of funds will occur within five business days.
The Department of Education will offer an alternative arrangement where this online option may not be possible.
