Escola BS Gonçalves Zarco is a post elementary and secondary school, created in 1968. Today it has about 1520 students in the day time, whose age ranges from 10 to young adults and about 130 adult students who attend night classes. Its curriculum offerings cover several levels within the regular compulsory school attendance (from 5th to the 12th grade), but it also offers vocational courses and night classes for adults. The majority of its students apply for general studies degrees. But recently, considering that the school is located in an economically disadvantaged suburban area of Funchal city (the great majority of its students come from low-income families, and most parents have only completed elementary school levels), the school has been paying greater attention to the vocational guidance of its students and started to develop more vocational training courses, according to the guidelines of its Educational Project. Most of the students, who attend these technical degrees, are economically disadvantaged, and because of that they are supported and followed by social welfare. The School’s Educational Project also diagnosed that it needed to improve pupils’ learning outcomes, establish school attendance strategies and implement measures to prevent the dropping out of students who leave school even before they complete their opportunities for later job search. The motivation of our school comes specialy from the fact that we have a regional and peripheral condition, which put us sometimes outside of the decisions made at the national level, in the specific case of the project theme, programs of schools subject have few references to the region, a situation that is being overcome in our school, with dynamics created by the teachers, such as the Portuguese Language, Natural Sciences, History, Geography, of Musical Education among others, in which they end up voluntarily including their regional practices in their educational practices. The responsibility for the project will be David Leça, but the work will be done by a multidisciplinary team working on the project, and it was agreed with the executive council that in case the responsible person is not available, someone in the team will take over the project. Professor David Leça, is a teacher with experience in Eramus projects, and is the coordinator at the school of topics related to the promotion of local and regional content, with a varied agenda ranging from the works in the classroom, through teacher training and lectures and conferences to promote initiatives and practices in defense, promotion and enhancement of the study of regional and local issues. The teachers of the team that will implement the project are also involved in these projects at the school and some even at the regional level, as it replicates their work in schools in the region.
