“Each director has a manual that specifies the way to return to the classrooms,” said the undersecretary of Higher and Higher Secondary Education in Durango, as he explained that half of the enrollment of upper secondary students study in federal institutions and the address is in Mexico.

He pointed out that strategies established by the federal Undersecretariat are already being carried out, which are based on searching each student to their homes to motivate them and give them options to take the subjects again and they will be supported with updates.

The project will be carried out throughout the month of July, in which young students will be able to take exams and in exceptional cases, the average they have based on previous semesters or semesters will be taken into account.
