In 2021, children will be admitted to school according to the new rules approved by the Ministry of Education of the Russian Federation. If earlier enrollment in the 1st grade was opened at the beginning of February, now you can apply only from April 1. Another innovation is that school enrollment orders will be issued only after June 30th. This causes some concern for dads and moms: what if the child is not enrolled in the right school, will it be possible to apply to another educational institution? And the main question: are the regions ready for a new admission procedure?
The last few years, on the eve of February 1, residents of Yekaterinburg, Petrozavodsk, and a number of other cities, in order to enroll their child in the 1st grade, had to spend the night in cars, freeze under the windows of schools and gymnasiums. A queue was formed, then from the evening moms and dads distributed the watch, called roll call so that no random people would get in. They wrote complaints to the prosecutor’s office and scolded the “State Services” service, which was “falling” from the influx of applications. In Yekaterinburg, the system was changed last year: an additional entry was made for children of benefit categories and the dates for filing applications were divided by district. Whether this practice is possible now is still unknown. “We need time to study the new regulatory document, agree with the Ministry of Education and Youth Policy of the Sverdlovsk Region, get clarifications from lawyers and then put all the information into the administrative regulations, which will be adopted no later than March 15, 2021,” explains the Deputy Head of the Department education of the administration of Yekaterinburg Elena Krechetova.
In Penza, school administrations may face difficulties, especially in new residential areas, where it is difficult to predict the number of assigned students. For example, in the city of Sputnik of the Penza region last year, 15 first grades were recruited, and only one was released. On the ruler here you can see the sign “1 P” class. Over the year, the microdistrict has grown with new skyscrapers, but there is still one school. Construction of the second one at the expense of federal funds is only in the plans.
The situation is no simpler in gymnasiums, where, in addition to the attached children, there is a high competition among those wishing to receive advanced education. “We will not be able to tell the parents of future first-graders whether their child will get to our school or not. From July 6, they will start accepting documents from children who do not belong to our school. Acceptance of documents from them was extended until September 5. But those have a chance. There is no point in submitting applications before these dates, since they will not be considered, “says Valeria Vishnenkova, director of the Penza Gymnasium No. 4” Steps “.“ Now children from families of military personnel, police officers, the National Guard, the Ministry of Emergency Situations, the Federal Penitentiary Service, the internal affairs bodies, as well as children whose brothers and sisters are already studying in an educational organization. “
In the Kuban last year, over 76 thousand first-graders sat down at their desks, 18.5 thousand of whom were in Krasnodar. Approximately the same school replenishment is expected in the coming September. However, it is possible that there will be more first-graders, especially in the Kuban capital, called the fastest growing city in the country. So, last year in the Krasnodar school N 71 33 parallel first grades were formed – according to the number of letters in the alphabet. They received letters from “A” to “Z”, and the school itself became the Russian record holder in the number of first grades. In the coming academic year, the city will have three new large schools and two buildings for existing educational institutions. Therefore, the letters in the alphabet for school parallels should now be enough.
If earlier enrollment in the 1st grade opened in early February, now you can apply only from April 1
– Due to the postponement of enrollment in the first grade from February to April, there should be no problems, – says the head of the city department of education Alexei Nekrasov. – Now our task is to inform parents about this, which is done through the websites of educational institutions, local media and kindergartens that future first-graders attend. The previous deadlines, in my opinion, were unnecessarily extended in time, which created unnecessary excitement. If we recall Soviet times, then in schools the enrollment of first-graders began only on August 15, but everything fit into the allotted half a month. And now the parents are given five whole months. Of course, in the event of conflict situations, you should immediately contact the municipal education authorities. Information about this is on our website, we are always ready to connect to help resolve disputes.
Irina Chinaeva, Deputy Minister of Education of the Saratov Region:
– The deadline for accepting applications for training from April 1 was already in effect. And it is right that they returned to him. Municipalities will have the opportunity to use more relevant information when preparing orders for assigning residential buildings to schools, now they will be drawn up by March 15. This is especially important for new buildings and new housing estates. New housing is usually rented out in late autumn and early winter, and the settlement takes place closer to spring, it is at this time that it becomes clear how many first graders there will be. What is also important – now parents do not need to queue to submit documents.
