Today ended the summer holiday and around 69,000 students will return to schools in Puerto Vallarta between preschool, primary and secondary, thus starting the school year 2016-2017, confirmed Teresa González Córdoba, Director of regional DRSE.

She explained that an additional 4,329 pupils will be entering secondary level for the first time, primary will be 3,973 students entering first grade, and those entering second grade will be 3,144 students along with another 300 in third grade.

This results in an increase of about 11,746 new students who will begin the new school year and some for the first time in their life. However throughout the region from Cabo Corrientes to Puerto Vallarta, around 69,000 students will either be returning to school or beginning for the first time.

The official added that some of the new students may have attended school before but have moved from a different school district.

González Córdoba also highlighted that there are still scholarships at present and that are being applied for at DRSE that are aimed at students who live in a precarious economic situation.

Finally, she stressed that Puerto Vallarta will start classes as every other year, quiet and without any threat of a strike, which is different in some other states where teachers threaten to strike, thus preventing students from entering school.
