2 Compulsory Kindergarten from 5 to 6, the year before school since 2009 in Vienna free of charge 2 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

3 Compulsory Schooling School attendance is compulsory for all children permanently resident in Austria irrespective of their nationality, and lasts for nine years. 3 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

4 School Start Compulsory schooling starts on the first of September following the child's sixth birthday. Children who celebrate their sixth birthday between September 1 (start of the academic year) and March 1, may start primary school prematurely, provided they are mentally and physically mature enough to follow lessons. 4 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

5 Special Education and Integration Legal regulations provide for the possibility of integrated teaching of disadvantaged and non-disadvantaged pupils in primary schools and (since the academic year of 1997/98) in lower secondary schools and in the lower level of secondary academic schools. The decision whether a disadvantaged child will be educated in a special needs school or in a conventional school rests with the parents of the child or other persons vested with the right of education. 5 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

6 Pupils with Mother Tongues other than German Special emphasis is put on the language teaching of these pupils. Teaching takes place in regular classes just as on an extracurricular basis. Children are given the opportunity to attend remedial classes to improve their command of German; special tutors attend to pupils with little knowledge of German. 6 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

7 Full-time Care Full-time primary, lower secondary and secondary academic schools provide students with assistance in general study work (5 hours a week). Moreover, they provide for leisure education until 5.30 p.m. at the latest. For use of these facilities fees are charged for care (the amount of this fee depends on the social situation of the child's family) and for catering (€ 8,84 per day or less). 7 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013

8 Primary School Primary schools [Volksschulen] are designed to provide all pupils with the same elementary education. Primary schools are to be organized as schools providing for four classes – one class for each school year. In addition to that and depending on the possibilities, primary schools are also requested to provide for pre-school education, either by means of a pre-school year [Vorschule]. 8 Comenius Schoolpartnership Vienna April 2013
