the University in Belgrade from the session of the Vice-deans for Teaching
of the schools
At the meeting of the Vice-deans for Teaching of the Schools of the
University in Belgrade held on February 17th 1997. at the School of Philosophy,
it was decided unanimously to present the Council of the Deans and the Managers
of the Institutes of the University in Belgrade with the following proposal of
The Plan of realization of the educational responsibilities in the school year
- If the students return to classes on Monday, February 24th and do not
interrupt them again, the end of this and the beginning of the next school
year 1997/98. should be on November 1st 1997. The delay in the commencement of
the next school year will be compensated with working on Saturdays and

the item 1. should be made by the schools seperately, depending on the needs of

- If the students do not return to classes on February 24th 1997, the

days as the students' return to classes in relation to this date. In this way,
36 calender weeks will be provided for the realization of the lectures in this
- The operation of the student homes and canteens should be provided during
the summer, due to the lectures and examinations that will be held in this
- The entrance examinations should be postponed and coordinated with the
school curriculum for the current school year.
- Taking into consideration that the beginning of a school year is defined by
the Law on the University, actions should be taken to legally regulate
the alteration of the terms stated in it. The school curriculum was subject to
change due to the extraordinary conditions, brought about by the crisis which
occured after the citizens were denied their electoral will in the second rounds
of the local elections from November 17th 1996, which were the events that couldn't
be influenced by the University.
The session was attended by 26 representatives of the schools. The
representatives from the School of Defectology, of Economy and of the
Organizational Sciences and from the School of Technical Sciences in Bor were
