The following students are required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission in the student portal at https://studentportal.scsa.wa.edu.au:
- All Year 12 students
- Year 11 students who are studying Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) Units 3 and 4 and sitting the 2022 ATAR course examinations
- Year 10 students who have been given approval to study ATAR Units 3 and 4 and sit the 2022 ATAR course examinations.
Students are requested to complete this process online by Thursday, 8 September 2022.
All categories of students as listed above will need to declare that they are aware of the requirements to achieve the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) and for sitting the ATAR course examination. Please refer to the Year 12 Information Handbook available on the School Curriculum and Standards Authority (the Authority) website at https://www.scsa.wa.edu.au/publications/year-12-information.
All students, as listed above, will be asked to give permission for the following:
(a) Release of their name should they win an award
The Authority award winners are published in the media and on the Authority’s website, if permission to do so has been given by the student.
(b) Use of school work for creating support materials
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of the school work produced during 2022, e.g. assignments, projects, portfolios, test, school-based exam responses.
(c) Use of examination responses (written and practical)
The Authority is seeking permission for the use of:
- ATAR course written and practical examination responses (copyright owned by the student); and
- images and sound recordings of the student in photographs, audio recordings and audio visual recordings that are made during the ATAR course practical examinations (copyright owned by the State of Western Australia).
Your child will be encouraged by the school to discuss each of the above questions with you, prior to completing the Student Declaration and Permission online. If your child is under 18 years of age, and has not discussed their responses with you, they will not be able to proceed further with their submission. This procedure ensures that your child cannot complete the Student Declaration and Permission unless they click on ‘Yes’ to the condition ‘I have discussed my responses to the above questions with my parents/guardians’.
Please note: Students will be required to complete the Student Declaration and Permission when they log in to the student portal before they can gain access to other important information, such as their course enrolments, examination timetable/s and results.
Further information on Student Declaration and Permission is available on the Authority’s website at https://senior-secondary.scsa.wa.edu.au/the-wace/student-declaration.
