The summer schools from Mijas have given service during the summer season to twenty minors with special needs under the ‘Integrating’ program, through which they have been able to integrate into standardized classrooms along with the rest of their classmates, as announced this Friday by the mayor, Josele González.
The councilor has highlighted that “the summer schools in Mijas are a mustbut this year we wanted to go one step further with a project presented to us by the Mijas Association for People with Intellectual Disabilities (ADIMI), to integrate children with special educational needs”.
“Until now they couldn’t do it because they were in specialized centersbut this year up to twenty boys and girls have been able to enjoy the summer schools like the rest of their classmates”, affirmed the councilor from Mijas, who wanted to highlight “the commitment of the Mijas Town Hall not only with labor conciliation, but also with those families that have children with special needs”.
Thus, up to a total of seven local schools have served minors in this program, subsidized by the Social Services area with 15,000 eurosand that it has had specialized monitors provided by ADIMI “according to the demand of the families themselves”, stressed the Councilor for Social Services, Hipólito Zapico.
The mayor has been very satisfied not only with the result of this program, “but with the global balance of the summer schools in Mijasthat have served more than 1,100 students in July and 890 in August, pre-pandemic numbers, which brings us to the normality of this service managed by the City Council itself thanks to an agreement with the Junta de Andalucía”, which has pointed out “it ends now and we are waiting to be able to renew it for another four years”.
