2. The Portuguese Republic shall support the establishment of an international school in the vicinity of an Allied Headquarters and shall ensure that such school receives the same facilities and conditions as accorded to the private schools in the Portuguese Republic. This support includes assistance to achieve accreditation of such school by national and international agencies.
3. An Allied Headquarters in the Portuguese Republic is authorised to set up and operate additional international schools, just as national units’ schools may be set up by the Allied Headquarters and/or national units under conditions and procedures to be subsequently established. Such schools shall have their own rules and regulations concerning all operational and administrative procedures, to include but not limited to curriculum and teacher qualifications. Such school shall be eligible for applying for support and facilities in accordance with paragraph 2 above. 4. The Portuguese Republic shall recognize, validate, and certify diplomas issued by schools referred to in paragraphs 2 and 3 above, and shall permit transfer or transition to the Portuguese education system, from elementary through high-school/gymnasium, according to and subject to the same rules and procedures under Portuguese law applicable to comparable private Portuguese schools, to higher education/university. Article 32 Welfare services
1. The Headquarters members and dependents can be engaged in support of Morale and Welfare programmes established by the Allied Headquarters and by national support units in accordance with NATO regulations. Such engagement does not amount to or correspond to employment. 2. In case a member dies or leaves the Portuguese Republic permanently, the dependents of such a member shall continue to be considered as dependents under this Supplementary Agreement for a period of up to ninety (90) days after such death or transfer, on the condition that the dependents are present in the Portuguese Republic. Upon request of an Allied Headquarters, the Portuguese Republic will give sympathetic consideration to extend the ninety (90) days up to one (1) year, in order to enable dependents to complete a school year or due to other compelling circumstances, to be determined on a case-by-case basis.
3. Should Portuguese education and social services become involved in cases regarding members or dependents without prior request of their sending State, the involved national support unit(s) or Allied Headquarters, as appropriate, shall be informed.
