None of the territory government's 20 promised psychologists for ACT schools have been appointed, more than a year after the 2016 election campaign pledge.
While the government put up $2.4 million over four years to fund five of the 20 positions in the 2017-18 budget, a spokesman for Education Minister Yvette Berry has confirmed none of those positions have been filled.
The promise was one of more than 100 parliamentary agreement pledges Chief Minister Andrew Barr and Greens leader Shane Rattenbury this week said were "on track" to be delivered by the 2020 election.
But the report on the status of those pledges applied few pre-2020 deadlines or specific budget allocations to the promises, making measuring progress on each specific measure difficult.
Asked about the lack of rigor in measuring progress, Mr Barr said the government would "continue to provide regular updates" on the agreement as well as the twice yearly budget updates.
But he said the latest agreement "status report" was just the "first year update in a four year parliamentary agreement" and the government was "not going to achieve everything in year one".
Ms Berry's spokesman said while none of the promised school psychologists had been appointed to date, the government was recruiting for the first five roles in five schools, with the staff expected to start next school year.
But the $2.4 million allocated in the 2017-18 budget does not cover the extra 15 positions, and it is unclear if the coming budget will include the additional funding.
The government has also been struggling to meet existing demand for psychiatrists in the mental health system, let alone the school-based psychologists it has promised, a national problem covering several mental health professions in public and private practice.
Across all portfolios, both Mr Barr and Mr Rattenbury said the government had made good progress, but indicated there was clearly more work to be done.
The status report showed 82 per cent of 122 promises were "on track"; 14 per cent were "completed" and five were "not yet commenced".
But some of the promises deemed "on track", such as a nurse-led walk-in centre in Gungahlin, were vaguely reported as "progress under way" or, in the case of a review of the ACT's energy efficiency rating scheme, the "timeframe for implementation is currently being considered".
It is unclear whether such initiatives will be completed before the ultimate deadline of the 2020 elections, as all are subject to the government's priorities and budget talks.
Initiatives completed included keeping Canberra Institute of Technology in public hands, new bus services, an autonomous vehicle trial, a housing summit and a study for a potential new national park in the ACT's north.
But those that have not started yet included setting targets for suicide reduction, adopting international models for 'active travel' budget assessments and replacing ageing trees and expanding cat containment measures.
