The Department of Education's program for managing and retaining secondary students at school (MARSSS) began in 1997, and involves the allocation of an additional resource of 33 full-time equivalent teachers to education districts. The MARSSS program aims to support schools to manage students whose behaviour is of serious concern, and to maintain those students at school. High numbers of the students on this program are from low socio-economic status backgrounds, and the majority are boys.

The program is managed by the district and evaluated annually by the Office for Educational Review. Schools are required to build the program into their overall supportive school environment program.
