Presidente Dutra Primary and Secondary Education School is currently located on the border between the urban and industrial areas of Barcarena (PA), very close to the port area of Vila do Conde. Hidrovias do Brasil S.A. undertook the commitment of reallocating the school to approximately one thousand meters away from the current position, at a more central and urbanized location, bringing more security to the students and teachers. The new school will also have a covered sports court and will be the first one of the region meeting all standard needs defined by the State Education Department (SEDUC), which, moreover, already approved the project. Thus it becomes a model school for the State of Pará.
