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.
