Abstract: Remote and very remote schools face significant challenges in attaining outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students that are commensurate with all students. A critical aspect of the challenge is getting the mix of factors that influence Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student outcomes together in a balanced, comprehensive and sustainable manner in a remote context. Though schools serving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in remote areas face significant challenges, there are many that record successful outcomes for their students. This report describes 11 outstanding schools and identifies the unique and common practices the schools use to influence the various community, school, classroom, teacher and student-level factors that have potentially contributed to their improved performance. It examines: the practices and behaviours that drive improved Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student outcomes in remote school settings; the pathways the schools followed to achieve and sustain improved outcomes; and whether the common strategies and high-frequency actions are transferable to other school contexts.
