The State government has promised more than $18 million to 28 primary and secondary public schools across the Manning Great Lakes for the 2022 school year.
Funding has been allocated through the School Budget Allocation Report which includes monies allocated through the Resource Allocation Model (RAM), a needs-based model that ensures record funding is targeted at supporting the individual needs of students.
"This level of funding going to our schools mean students have the opportunities and support to reach their potential through a quality education," Member for Myall Lakes, Stephen Bromhead said.
"Principals will use this funding allocation to effectively plan the strategic use of resources, putting students and their education needs first," Mr Bromhead said.

The allocation of RAM funding recognises the needs of schools across NSW differ and takes into account the socio-economic profile of students, Aboriginal student numbers, students with disability and English language proficiency, he said.
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the funding provided certainty and gave schools the ability to plan the investment in their students.
"This record investment is not a 'spend and forget', but a targeted approach solely focused on our students and underpinned by the new School Success Model."
The School Success Model's commitment to simplifying school budgets and reducing time spent on low-value administrative tasks in schools strengthens the State-wide focus on teaching and learning to ensure funding is invested to improve results.
