Puerto Vallarta's Mayor Arturo Dávalos Peña has announced the free delivery of backpacks, supplies, uniforms, shoes and school insurance to students in the basic levels of our public schools. It is through these types of programs that go one step farther towards a prosperous city.

Dávalos Peña explained that backpacks and useful school supplies will be delivered to 52,000 children, i.e. all students in preschool, primary and secondary public schools, while 32 thousand children were enrolled in the Department of Social Development for the Shoes and School Uniform Program, who also receive this important support. Moreover, the School Insurance will also be given to all students.

"This Program of Help 2015-2018 is ready to make deliveries of supplies, backpacks, uniforms and shoes. For a week beginning on August 24 we will be working together to deliver these materials to all preschool, primary and secondary public schools. It is important that no child is left unstudied, so we are giving social support... no one should stop going to school."

Previously, Social Development staff visited the 280 public schools in the municipality to give each child and teacher of the schools the necessary enrollment procedures to be accomplished by parents for the 2016-2017 school year.

"We encourage parents not to buy backpacks and, if they signed up to the program of uniforms and shoes, not to buy those because the City Council will deliver to all schools in the municipality in a timely manner," said the mayor. He explained that the backpacks and school supplies are purchased 50% with local resources and 50% with state resources, while uniforms, shoes and school insurance have a resource of 100% local.
