By Jade Arroyo

On June 28 the graduation ceremony for the first graduating class from the municial Rural Tele-High School program was held in the Comisión Municipal del Deporte (COMUDE) facilities. This first graduating class consisted of more than 200 young people who are students from eight different centers. The students who participated in the graduation were from: Clavellinas, Don Francisco, Jalpa, Los Galvanes, La Huerta, Las Cañas, Los González, and Pantoja.

The students received their certificates from members of the board that included Mayor Ricardo Villareal, the rector of the Virtual Guanajuato State University (UVGE) Mauricio Mokarzel, Education of the North Region delegate Monserrat Bataller, UVGE lawyer César Augusto Osornio Zapian, and student Melani Magdalena Esguerra Trejo who was  representing the students of the Community Tele-High School.

It should be noted that the Federal Community Program for the Tele-High School is administered in Guanajuato by the UVEG and currently operates with 329 centers located in communities throughout the state that do not have a high school program within a 5-kilometer radius and have less than 2,500 inhabitants.

The Virtual University of the State of Guanajuato came into being in 2007 through the  initiative of the Guanajuato State Government under Decree Number 40 with the objective of creating academic programs through an innovative and flexible educational model.

The virtual learning environment is supported by advanced information and communication technologies, and is meant to ensure educational equity by offering a variety of programs through collaborative networks.

The focus is on providing educational opportunities by means of virtual and face-to-face classes with the help of educational committees or through the Federal Community Tele-High School Program by bringing education to communities with less than 2,500 inhabitants. UVEG’s educational program offers academic programs for various educational levels: high school, bachelor, engineering, and master’s degrees, as well as general courses, seminars, and diploma courses.

In an interview with the Rector of the UVEG, Mauricio Mokarzel, officialy said that an UVEG room will be opened in the Biblioteca Pública. This room will have computers, a  digital library, a registration area, and a place where students can go to study or continue  their studies. The area will have advisers who are trained to guide students interested in virtual education programs. The programs are inexpensive and accessible to students from all socio-economic levels. The fees range from 100 pesos for high school to 200 pesos for degree programs.
