Election on advanced campuses
As already disclosed, the IFSP rectory published the 3.177 Ordinance, which indicates a differentiated form of consultation for the advanced campuses Jundiaí, Tupã, Ilha Solteira and São Miguel Paulista, regarding the choice of their new directors-general.
Like Decree 6986 / 09, which regulates consultations for campuses general directors at Federal Institutes, does not cover advanced campuses, it is the discretion of the rector to appoint these directors, regardless of the duration of these campuses. However, the current IFSP management has adopted a policy of holding democratic consultations with campuses that have been in operation for more than two years.
In this way, together with the processes triggered for the election of president and general directors of campuses, there will be consultations for the advanced campuses previously mentioned. The Electoral Code for the choice of managing directors for advanced campuses follows the same schedule as for the election of director-generals for the other IFSP campuses, with pertinent changes in some process rules, which can be seen in the specific code available below.
