The restart of the school year after the winter holidays in 16 provinces will lead to the incorporation of one more hour of class per day in Catamarca, Chaco, Entre Ríos, Santa Cruz, Tucumán, Tierra del Fuego and in rural schools in San Juan. While in other districts, such as the case of Córdoba, the educational authorities affirmed that they design the way to implement the time extension, especially for the primary level.

According to the schedule adopted by the Federal Council of Education, starting this Monday the 25th classes resume in Córdoba, Catamarca, Chubut, Entre Ríos, Jujuy, La Pampa, La Rioja, Mendoza, Misiones, Neuquén, Río Negro, Salta, San Juan, San Luis, Santa Fe and Tucuman.
