The lowest estimate is that approximately 250 000 refugees will arrive in the Czech Republic. These will primarily be mothers with children, and some will be dependent children. These children need to be educated somewhere and, overall, a support network needs to be created around them, from psychologists to teachers. We need to know the capacity of the facilities where they are accommodated as well as their predispositions.
Create a portal to link data between different government entities. The portal will be divided into a non-public and a public part, which will be accessed by the OSPOD (=Organ of Social and Legal Protection of Children, colloquially "social welfare"), the Ministry of Education and Science and local governments.
The public page will be for Ukrainian parents to search for a free school in their area.
