Description: The Assistance for Isolated Children (AIC) Scheme helps (provides financial assistance) the families of primary, secondary, and certain tertiary students who cannot attend an appropriate state school on a daily basis because of geographical isolation. An appropriate state school is one that offers tuition at the year or grade for which the student is qualified to enrol. If a student has a disability or other health-related condition or a special education need that requires a special school program, facilities or environment, an appropriate state school will be one that can provide access to those things. The Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations is responsible for AIC Scheme policy. The Department of Human Servicesí Centrelink services conducts assessments, processes claims and makes payments under its Bilateral Management Arrangement with DEEWR.
