The training and start-up of pedagogical coordinations at the center of the training day for municipalities, organized by Anci Lombardia in collaboration with the region and the Regional School Office to assess the regulatory framework and raise some doubts about remove the coordinates. started around regional territory.
The webinar is after its publication in BURL n. 21 of 27 May of the DGR n. 6397 of 23 May 2022 “Approval of the Guidelines for the Implementation of Territorial Pedagogical Coordinations, in accordance with Legislative Decree No. 65/2017”.
It opened the works Augusta CeladaDirector of the Regional School Office for Lombardy: “As regards the start of the pedagogical coordination, the Regional School Office has activated all actions within its competence and initiated through a discussion table with the region the training for staff for the continuity of education of children in the zero-six age category, in order to emerge from a prosperity dimension and to reach a dimension that guarantees equal opportunities ”.
Loredana Poli, President of the Department of Education, Education Policy and School Construction of ANCI Lombardia and Councilor of the Municipality of Bergamo on the subject of Education 0-6, the National System and the Integrated System 0-6). The pedagogical coordination – explains Councilor Poli – is part of a diverse system and the coordination action has been initiated by the regions regulated by the regions. Also for the Lombardy region there is the awareness of a system in the making and one of the main element is to keep in mind the specifics and the specifics of the territories, in order to guarantee the cohesive territory as much as possible “.
During the webinar, he spoke Davide Sironi, Director of the System Structure of Interventions and Social Care Units, Directorate General for Family, Social Solidarity, Disability and Equal Opportunities of the Lombardy Region, which created the complex regional network of early childhood education services (0-3 years), which has 2,431 structures which is not always homogeneous in the whole territory, and on the complex network of public and private playschools (age range 3-6) which has about 3,000 schools. “The 2021-2023 programming – explains Sironi – provides for 5% of the annual state contribution to be used for the continuous training of education and teaching staff for the promotion of pedagogical coordination. The annual contribution is for the municipalities Considering the territorial aggregations referred to in Law 328/2000 and Regional Law 2/2008, a quota allocated to the commune of the area with the largest population aged between 0-5 years. The local authority’s governance is coordinated by local authorities: “Municipalities are required to coordinate the planning of educational provision on their territory by building and integrating an integrated and unified network of services and schools, with continuous interaction with the school management and with all the owners of the childcare services. The choice of region provides for local governance to develop at the territorial level. The pedagogical coordination is carried out at the level of the communes present in the area plans, at the moment 91. Due to the organizational complexity we found it appropriate in Lombardy to place a local 0-6 committee next to each pedagogical coordination. This is an experiment in which the municipalities are called upon to create 91 coordinations in two years, at the end of which we will reflect. Already today – he concluded – an operational table for the creation of specific FAQs is starting “.
“A two-year period of experimentation opens up – he repeated Loredana Poli – with an interlocution to collect items we did not think of. Reference is made to the objectives set out in Decree 65 and the guidelines aimed at qualifying and expanding the 0-6 system, particularly in areas where the application is not met. As far as the qualification of the system is concerned, I think we need to leave the logic of individual systems and speak of a single system with attention to the territories.
He also dwelled on the topic of resources Roberto Gironi of the Directorate-General for Education of the Lombardy Region: “5% of the resources allocated to Lombardy are earmarked for the coordination and training of teachers, 2.3 million for each year. Municipalities as regulatory bodies have been made available to allocate resources through zoning plans in the territorial areas. Resources monitored from 2024 “.
To conclude the work, the President of the Education Department of Anci Lombardia Loredana Poli reminded that for the leading municipality of the region the 5% share of the resources can also be used for the administrative part. While in terms of training, he stressed that the coordination of what is already in place to bring about and identify room for improvement. Gianpiera VismaraCoordinator of the Department of Education of Anci Lombardia, at the end of the work she answered the questions of the municipalities and reminded that the association will soon prepare FAQs on the main questions and critical issues that have arisen, which will be published on the specially created. Site and sent to all municipalities together with the webinar material.
