Redován 28/02/2019. La concejala de Educación, Servicios Sociales y Fiestas, Nely Ruiz, ha hecho hoy balance del mandato en las diferentes áreas que gestiona. Entre ellas ha destacado que Educación “es un área fundamental y la base donde se asienta todo el crecimiento de un pueblo y la mejor herramienta de cambio para avanzar”. En este sentido la edil ha defendido las inversiones realizadas y resaltado que Redován fue uno de los primeros municipios en adherirse al plan Xarxa llibres del que se invirtieron 99.142,66 euros de los que 34.000 euros los aportó el Ayuntamiento para la adquisición de libros.
La concejala ha asegurado que “hemos apostado por la jornada continua, invirtiendo de 3.200 euros el primer año a 9.000 euros el último para la contratación de tres monitores. Asimismo 59 familias se han beneficiado de las becas de material escolar para el segundo ciclo de infantil con un importe de 5.000 euros.
Respecto a los centros educativos, en el Colegio Público Sagrados Corazones se ha reformado la pérgola del lucernario, acondicionado los aseos y vestuarios y restaurado la pista polideportiva. “En el patio hemos incorporado juegos infantiles e instalado cuatro canastas de básquet, así como la construcción de un almacén, y también hemos invertido 13.000 euros en la instalación de aire acondicionado”, ha afirmado Ruiz. En la Escuela Infantil Pasitos, también se han llevado adecuaciones en el mobiliario. La edil ha recordado que “hemos tramitado toda la documentación necesaria para adherirnos al Plan Edificant y con ello vamos a reformar el colegio Sagrados Corazones y a acometer la construcción del aulario del IES Jaime de Sant Ángel.
Por otro lado, la también responsable del área de Fiestas ha querido destacar de la concejalía las diferentes actuaciones como los concursos durante las fiestas patronales de ‘Selfies’ y Disfraces o la Fiesta de Colores, siendo “el primer Ayuntamiento en traer este evento a la comarca de la Vega Baja”. La edil ha asegurado que “el compromiso de esta concejalía ha sido siempre la unión de todos los festeros, por ello junto con la Junta Central Festera retomamos la entrada de bandas consiguiendo revalorizar un día importante como es el desfile de peñas y barracas”.
Ruiz ha destacado el impulso a actividades y eventos que fomentan las costumbres del municipio como los teatros infantiles y también campañas en favor de la tolerancia y el respeto como #ConTalento, que “con el objetivo de sensibilizar contra el alcohol, igualmente que la campaña #NoTienesMiPermiso, que ha ayudado a sensibilizar a nuestra sociedad ante la importancia de valores tan necesarios como el respeto, educación, libertad y valentía”, ha afirmado la edil.
Estas últimas campañas corresponden a los Servicios Sociales que en Redován se prestan a través de la Mancomunidad La Vega, un ente del que forma parte la localidad junto a los municipios de Algorfa, Jacarilla y San Miguel de Salinas “que nos permite compartir proyectos y gastos de manera que podemos ofrecer a la ciudadanía servicios que por parte del Ayuntamiento de Redován en solitario sería imposible ofrecer o muy caros”. Ruiz ha destacado en estos cuatro años las mejoras en las instalaciones de Servicios Sociales en la Casa del Reloj en cuya primera planta se ubica la sede de la Mancomunidad y la mejora de los servicios “con más días de atención e incremento de servicios como la Agencia de Igualdad, Servicio de Inclusión Social, Adisex Jove y próximamente el área de juventud y ocio educativo”.
En cuanto a los servicios que se prestan “el incremento del gasto que ha llegado a los 228.267,60 euros, ha permitido atender 1.151 expedientes de ayudas para familias”, y la edil también ha indicado que se ha incrementado el personal “para hacer una atención más integral y especializada”. Nely Ruiz ha comentado que el aumento de servicios y personal no ha supuesto que suba de manera considerable el gasto del Ayuntamiento “ya que las subvenciones que recibe la Mancomunidad de la Conselleria ha aumentado un 323%, alcanzando los 559.840 euros en 2018”.
De este modo la atención se ha extendido a todos los colectivos con apoyo a la dependencia, atención a domicilio, actividades para personas mayores, talleres dirigidos exclusivamente a mujeres e iniciativas como la ‘areola solidaria’ de apoyo a las mujeres con cáncer de mama.

This afternoon will begin the activities in the pool “that will be free every Friday in March, at eight thirty in the afternoon”, while on Sunday at 11.30 am “we will celebrate at the City Hall an act that has been taking place for a few years and that supposes the recognition to a woman of our town by its personal and labor trajectory, and this year the distinguished woman is Margarita Monera Martinez “, has concluded the councilor.
Redovan 27/02/2019. The works to build a 24-hour Study Room and the one that will be the Municipal Exhibition Hall of Redován, in the extension of the Third Age building, are going at a good pace and its completion is expected in about 60 days. This was explained this morning by the mayor, Emilio Fernández, who has visited the progress of the works that have an investment of 450,000 euros.
The work being carried out includes two plants with an area of 270 square meters. “This project began in 2011 with the extension of the Third Age building and the Municipal Archive”, explained Fernández.
The building has a total cost of one million euros, after all the work done over the past years and has been helped by two plans of Oras and Services of the Provincial Council of Alicante, providing the City Council 200,000 euros
The mayor has expressed his satisfaction that “we fulfilled a commitment with the residents of Redován who demanded a 24-hour Study Class so that our young people did not have to go to other municipalities to study in conditions”. Also, the mayor has stressed that thanks to this action “finally we will have a municipal exhibition hall to accommodate all kinds of samples.” In this sense Fernandez recalled that the municipal archive was installed in the first phase on the ground floor and said that “we are very sensitive with everything that surrounds the history of the municipality and that is why we wanted the archives to be in a place optimal for its conservation and study “.
Fernandez also thanked the Provincial Council of Alicante for their help to undertake works that “will improve the quality of life of citizens and once completed the neighbors can enjoy these facilities for many years.”
Next Wednesday, September 5, in the afternoon, there will be an informative meeting for parents of children who come this year to the Municipal School of Redován. At the same time there will be an open day for those who do not know the facilities of the school and will be made known all the details for the operation in the new course.
Redován 24/7/2018. The plenary session of the City Council of Redován gave yesterday the approval, unanimously of all the municipal groups, to the technical memories that have been prepared from the Consistory to execute the extension of the IES Jaime de Sant-Ángel and the adequacy of the CEIP Sacred Hearts. Both works will be included in the Edificant Plan of the Ministry of Education, once the regional administration accepts the projects presented by the Consistory, and the forecast is that they can begin to run early next year and end in the first half of 2021. The amount of both actions amounts to 3.7 million euros, so “once the reports are accepted by the Ministry will begin in the first place to bid for the works and then to run,” explained the Councilor for Education Nely Ruiz. The mayor has indicated that the term runs from 2019 to 2021 “because we want to complete the projects of needs that we have raised for both schools.”
The Plan Edificant supposes that the Ministry of Education contributes the necessary funds and that, to expedite the procedures, the city councils are in charge of the execution. “What can not happen is that the money is lost, so we have planned a multi-year investment so that there is time to do everything you want to do within this plan of the Generalitat,” said Ruiz. The mayor recalled that Redován has been asking for the expansion of the IES for a decade and that the Sacred Hearts school also needs an important adaptation of its facilities, especially in relation to accessibility “and we do not want the issue of deadlines they can be halfway “.
Expansion of the IES
As for the Secondary Education Center, the work involves the creation of a classroom that ends the current space problems, which require students and teachers to occupy practically all the spaces of the IES Jaime de Sant-Ángel building. The report is based on an execution project that was drafted by the Ministry of Education in 2009 but which was never implemented. After adapting to current regulations, it will mean the creation of four high school classrooms with the necessary space for teachers and two for Secondary Education, in addition to another smaller classroom and one computer room. The extension is prepared to accommodate 140 high school students and 60 ESO students in a ground floor and two-storey building that will have a constructed area of 1,369 square meters. The planned budget is 2,072,263.85 euros.
With respect to the Sacred Hearts School, it is expected to update the so-called gray pavilion, raised in the 60s of the last century, and then the red one, from the 90s, charged to the Edificant Plan. Thus, in the oldest area action will be taken to improve accessibility, sanitation and evacuation, in an intervention that will cover the 1,110 square meters of built surface, with an auxiliary construction for the staircase and the elevator. In addition to the replacement of shutters and carpentry, the main action will be the demolition of the existing staircase and four bathrooms that will be completely reformed, given that by expanding the staircase area will be built six units of 22 square meters that will serve the twelve classrooms of the building.
Also to improve the accessibility and safety of teachers and students the building will be equipped with an elevator, and will be outside the building where a metal structure with double staircase and aisles distributors.
In the second of the buildings it is planned to undertake the replacement of the blinds, rehabilitation of the outer access pergola to eliminate leaks and repair different areas of the facade among other things. Also in the yard is the installation of accessible children’s games and will end with one of the demands of fathers and mothers when summer arrives, providing air conditioning this area of the school center that still did not have it, which in turn will entail works of reinforcement of the electrical installation.
In the case of the Sacred Hearts CEIP the total budget amounts to 1,770,850.30 euros and the same as the IES is expected to run in the next three years, with the intention that it can be all finished in the first half of 2021. Meanwhile prefabricated classrooms will be installed to guarantee the operation of the center and the safety of those who work and study in it.
The Generalitat Valenciana has approved the extension of the IES Jaime de Sant Ángel de Redován within the framework of the Edificant Plan. A process already underway that will put an end to eleven years of claims by the municipality of Redova. The mayor, Emilio Fernandez, explained that he is waiting for the Ministry of Education to send the project adapted to the new technical standards, “since the one we had was the year 2007 and needs that adaptation.” The first mayor hopes that this document arrives in a short period of time so that it can be presented at the Ampa Council of the school and then to the Plenary, “if possible to the month of July, so that we can approve the delegation of powers and thus begin to execute the work as soon as possible. ”
The IES Jaime de Sant Ángel needs for years a new classroom, six classes that will be built now and that will be allocated to both ESO and Bachillerato students. The cost of the work is estimated at around 1.2 million euros and hopes to end the overcrowding “living for years, because we have an overflowed institute”. The mayor says that the students occupy all the available spaces, “they are teaching in the laboratory, in the assembly hall, in the departments, and if we continue like this they would have to take two classes to the patio”.
Fernandez has indicated that at the beginning of this corporate mandate the situation was shown to the regional secretary of Education, and that during the last years there have been many visits to the Territorial Directorate of Education. A couple of weeks ago the mayor went to Elche during a visit by the conseller Vicente Marzá to expose the situation and “he told me that in fifteen days he would have news, and fortunately that was the case”.
Thus, the City hopes to be able to approve the delegation of powers in July, since as marked by the Plan Edificant, to speed up the construction are the municipalities that manage the funds provided by the Government. From there the works will be launched with the intention that they can be ready “if possible, in less than a year,” Fernandez concluded.
The City Council of Redován has launched, once approved in the Local Government Board, the municipal program of aid aimed at students of the municipality who enjoy rasmus + scholarships during this course. “These scholarships are launched by the Consistorio redovanense, since they were already included in the municipal budget approved at the end of last year”, recalled the mayor, Emilio Fernández. The budget heading for Erasmus students is 2,000 euros that will be divided into five grants of 400 euros each, as reflected in the bases that can be consulted since last Tuesday on the bulletin board of the Electronic Headquarters of the City Council of Redován.
“From the government team it was decided to include this type of scholarship among the various grants that we have in place for young people with the intention of complementing the allocation given to students through the institutions on which the Erasmus program depends”, said Fernandez, who considers that “the European program is a vital experience and cultural exchange, and that is why we wanted to contribute to the promotion of this program in our municipality, giving priority to those who have less economic availability and better qualifications so that they can enjoy he”.
The scholarships are aimed at students who have an Erasmus + scholarship during the academic year 2017-2018 who reside for at least two years in Redován, and are complementary to any other assistance that the interested person may receive. Those who want to opt for them must comply with all the requirements indicated in the bases and present the documentation in person at the City Council, through the Electronic Office or in the registers specified in the Law of Common Administrative Procedure of Public Administrations within a period of 30 calendar days counted from the publication in the electronic bulletin board (http://redovan.sedelectronica.es/).
With regard to the resolution of the grants, it will be made public within a maximum period of two months from the end of the deadline for submitting applications and will have the necessary publicity to provide the call -free competition- with the necessary transparency and for that interested people can be aware of the entire procedure. The Department of Education directed by Nely Ruiz will be responsible for proposing the award of scholarships following a series of criteria such as family income or the applicant’s academic record. Ultimately the aid will be approved by the Local Government Board of the Municipality of Redován.
