Dear / I

along with Note dated September 21, 2022 the Ministry of Education, at the request of ANCI, informs that the municipalities for the school years 2022/2023 and 2023/2024, they can assign substitute assignments in the same kindergartens, for students enrolled in the academic year 2021/2022 (third, fourth and fifth year) of the course in primary school, in possession of prescribed credits, in analogy to the provisions of Ministerial Order No. 112/2022 for state schools. This possibility is also in the light of the provisions of Art. 1 of the law no. 62/2000 on educational equality and the right to study and education, with which the National Education System is established. In fact, in recent months, ANCI has initiated talks with the Ministry of Education on the subject, which represents the difficulties of the municipalities in proceeding with the replacement of staff. On the other hand, it is not possible to assign temporary assignments to students enrolled in the same academic year, in the third year of the course in education with specialization in educators and educational services for children.

It is also recalled that, thanks to an amendment of the ANCI, the Legislative Decree n. 228 converted into Law no. 15/22 (so-called Milleproroghe), confirmed for the municipalities in an extraordinary way, also for the school year 2022/2023, the possibility of temporary assignments for the temporary substitutions in kindergartens and parity schools to rely on the ranking . of the service educators educational for children, in possession of a qualification suitable for operating childcare services. The more complicated question about access to university degrees still remains open, to which ANCI has asked the Ministry of Universities for a comparison, to which an answer is awaited in order to find a solution in the medium-long term.

Kind regards
