Until next February 28th, 2018, families with children studying in Middle and High public schools of Lisbon can request the reimbursement of the amount spent with the schoolbooks for the 2017-2018 academic year .

The measure was approved at a City Council meeting on December 20th and is already being implemented since January 2nd.

In order to formalize the reimbursement request, simply complete the form and present the invoices of the expenses incurred with the acquisition of the textbooks.

The completed form and the invoices must be delivered to the secretariat of the host school of the group attended by the student.

This measure covers only textbooks, excluding activity books.

In the next school year, this measure will not be applied through reimbursement. Instead, each school will make manuals available to students early in the year.

The Arroios Parish Council provides the form here and also at the service centers.
