Free textbooks for primary school - school year 2022/2023

Book coupon - school year 2022/2023
Il The Municipality provides Padua residents (even if enrolled in schools located in other municipalities) attending primary school with textbooks free of charge.
For the 2022/2023 school year, the Municipality of Padua has adopted a computerised coupon creation system. No paper coupons will, therefore, be handed over to the parent.
The bookshop/bookstore, by accessing with their own credentials the portal made available by the Municipality of Padua and entering the child's tax code, will see the associated coupon. If the coupon is available, the shopkeeper can deliver the textbooks (if the user has already used the coupon, it will appear as already used).
To use the service, the parent/guardian must go to the authorised bookshops with only the child's tax code. The retailer will order and deliver the textbooks, at the expense of the municipality.
The coupons will be made out in the name of the student, and will bear the reference to the class of enrolment; it will be the responsibility of the family to deliver to the retailer of their choice the list of books adopted.
The list of accredited retailers will be published on Padovanet at the following link: comunication to the parents of the students
