Alongside formal systems of governance in secondary education there are important informal relationships of accountability among key stakeholders, organized around
voluntary obligation in the public interest. Developing these accountabilities enhances sustainability. This article argues that social accounting, when firmly rooted in the
values of the school community, can be a valuable tool in developing accountability and a practical means of enhancing sustainability.
