Interstate Student Data Transfer Note

The Interstate Student Data Transfer Note (ISDTN) and Protocol is a joint initiative between the Australian Government, State and Territory Education Departments, and the independent and Catholic education sectors.

All education authorities (including the non-government sector) have agreed to implement, from 1 January 2006, a national system for the transfer of student information between schools when children move from one state to another. This national system will enhance the ability of the student's new school to place and support that student in a timely manner and with the assistance of accurate information from the student's previous school. The national system is based on using a common "Interstate Student Data Transfer Note" and set of protocols.
