The platform is ready to monitor teachers’ green certificates. The alarm of the school leaders: we risk chaos gatherings
all ready for the platform that will allow principals to automatically check the green pass of teachers and school staff. The Dpcm authorizing them to use the new platform in the Official Gazette. From Monday, entering their profile in the Sidi system they will also find the button
which allows you to report the absence (which will be unjustified) due to lack of the green pass
. Sogei, which prepared the platform, has finished testing. The principals will not be able to try it in advance, they will be satisfied with the explanatory slides sent by the ministry. At this point all that remains is to wait and see, one of the leaders of the ministry escapes by crossing his fingers.
The Bianchi-Giannelli battle
On the eve of the return to class of most of the Italian students – Monday 13 – the tension with the principals union remains high. Bianchi replies to the president of the PNA Antonello Giannelli doubtful about the extension of the green pass also to parents accompanying small children and that it is necessary even if they stop in the common areas of the schools beyond the entrance door. Porr huge problems of control, protest on behalf of school leaders. There is no gathering, there have always been parents who have brought the children to the doors of the school. Who, then, has to make an entry because he has to talk or meet, does so in the protection of everyone – replies Bianchi – Who has to bring very young children for the insertions, does it as he is already doing, based on the principle that large protect the little ones. We want to secure all our schools, our kids, our children.
But the new arrangement arrived on the eve of the start of classes creates further nervousness. Among the controversial issues of the introduction of the green pass there is that of the sanction to the principals in the event that the control of the entrances is not unexceptionable. The CISL had asked to cancel the fine. The NPC had contested that it had not been agreed before it was included in the August decree. There was also talk of halving it (from 400 to 1000 euros) when it is converted into law. The government discharged the responsibility on the schools while it had to proceed with the vaccination obligation. You have to have no idea how schools work to think about implementing the green pass in this context, says Francesco Sinopoli of the Flc CGIL. Anief announces an appeal against the extension of controls and a strike on Monday 13, the first day of school. We do not want to understand that the measures for the school cannot be those used for a pizzeria, complains Pino Turi, secretary of the Uil Scuola.
The vaccine boom
If the climate remains hot as at the beginning of the school year, a good result is instead signaled on the vaccine front. The numbers of vaccinated among school staff and especially among children are growing further. General Figliuolo’s weekly report shows a 93.1 percent prof with at least one dose of vaccine and only 103,000 unvaccinated in the category. If we consider that a few thousand are exempt because they fall into the category of those who have a green pass because they are cured or because they are exempt, fewer than a hundred thousand are still missing. Among the 16-19 year olds, three out of four have now had at least one dose of vaccine with peaks around 80 percent in Lombardy. Half of the teenagers are fully vaccinated. Of the youngest – 12-15 year olds – now one in two has done at least the first dose (52.5 per cent) with peaks of 60 in Lombardy.
From Monday, in addition to schools and principals, public transport systems will also be tested. Six out of 15 metropolitan cities (Milan, Rome and Naples, first and foremost) confirmed the double entry and exit shifts between 7.45 am and 10 am with different city-by-city modes agreed with the prefects. A total of 5,833 additional public transport has been bought in recent months by local authorities to improve the service. Puglia and Emilia Romagna are the regions where the most invested. Compared to the first months of the year, services in terms of cars and mileage increased by almost 10 per cent. Commissioner Figliuolo’s structure was instead forced to withdraw a large stock of surgical masks distributed to schools in 2020 because they were not up to standard: they will be thrown away.
