Project to create 33 new schools in Sao Paulo receives support from FGV

FGV Projetos and the state government of Sao Paulo have signed a public-private partnership to build 33 high schools and elementary schools, and to operate non-educational services there. The initiative’s international tender notice was published in the official state gazette and its drafting was supported by FGV Projetos.

The private sector will be responsible for setting up the schools and for services such as preventive and corrective maintenance, supply and maintenance of equipment and materials, cleaning, entry control, electronic surveillance and Wi-Fi. Teaching services will be the responsibility of the state government.

The aim of the project is to expand the supply of extended school day places at schools with modern infrastructure, in order to improve students’ performance and reduce dropout rates. The schools will be built in 29 municipalities in the state of Sao Paulo. The project will reduce the shortage of extended school day places and the need for long-distance school transportation. It will also free up principals’ and teachers’ time, enabling them to focus on educational issues.

The project was structured by the national development bank (BNDES) and developed for the Sao Paulo State Secretariat for Investment Partnerships and the State Education Secretariat. FGV, through its technical advisory unit, FGV Projetos, contributed to the technical, economic, legal and financial modeling work, leading a consortium of consultants that also included Dal Pozzo Advogados and Faccio Arquitetura. According to Charles Schramm, the executive manager responsible for the project, “This will certainly be a milestone in the sector and an example for other Brazilian states in their search for solutions to modernize their educational infrastructure, reduce shortages of places and school dropout rates, and provide environments that help students perform better.”
