The Valle d’Aosta regional council is examining a “return plan” to schools which does not exclude the return to class in May and throughout June, but which also looks to September. The councilor for education Chantal Certan reiterated that “the social aspect and the role of the school must be taken into account for the families who have to leave”. “I don’t know the situations of schools in other regions – he added – but in Valle d’Aosta 80% of the classes (or 820 out of over 1,100) have less than 20 pupils, there are mountain schools with a teacher-pupil ratio from one to three to one to five. The conditions are particular, therefore it is possible to plan to return with reduced hours and numbers. In this regard, a first draft of the Return Plan, with a health protocol, is under examination by the Government regional”.
“We believe that doing this type of work – said the President of the Region, Renzo Testolin – can be positive in order not to find ourselves late, even if the opening will be in September. A process of discussion and sharing with the school leaders and with local authorities “.
