The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) is an annual collection of information about Australian school students who are receiving adjustments due to disability.
Your role in the NCCD will differ depending on your role at the school.
Principals and school teams are responsible for facilitating the NCCD, including ensuring that all staff are aware of the process and of the school's obligations under the DDA and the Standards.
Teachers provide adjustments for students with disability as part of their general teaching practices. Documented evidence of these adjustments underpins NCCD decision-making.
The NCCD has no direct impact on students.
Parents, guardians and carers may provide the school with information or records to assist the school to understand the student's needs. This can help the school to accurately assess the student's inclusion in the NCCD.
Medical and allied health professionals may provide diagnoses or other assessment information, with parental permission, that can help the school to accurately assess the student's inclusion in the NCCD.
