Each town council will be able to allocate three local non-school days as well as local fiestas in the event that one or two for each municipality are celebrated on a school day.
Once the school calendar is published in the Official Gazette of the Generalitat Valenciana (DOGV), the municipal schools council (CEM), which is the highest participatory body for the educational community in municipalities, will draw up the calendar with local fiestas and non-school days for each town and city.
The CEM can request a fourth non-school day that must be recovered elsewhere and authorized by the general management of the Teaching Centres. The day can be recovered usually by extending or shortening the Christmas or Easter holidays by one day.
