In the fall, the municipal council should discuss the concept of the school and a plan of founding measures. If approval of the council is secured, other actions will follow to open the school, the municipality said on Thursday.

Klaipėda Mayor Vytautas Grubliauskas has expressed regret over the lack of attention from the Lithuanian administration.

In his words, the municipality is willing to open the school by its own.

The School for Sea Cadets would cover general education and pre-vocational training of navigation and shipping, with training provided in a practical teaching base, as well as in internal waters and open seas.
