Update May 12th

Department of Education and Skills announced some additional details regarding the remainder of the school year for Leaving Certificate students and the process of assigning calculated grades. This is the text of the additional information.

“When does tuition to final year Leaving Certificate students cease, given that calculated grades are being put in place?

As of 11 May 2020, tuition (whether online or in other ways) ceased for sixth-year leaving certificate students. This applies to the Leaving Certificate established, Leaving Certificate Applied (LCA) and Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme (LCVP).

No additional work will be accepted from students from this date. Teachers and students may not discuss the student’s achievement in the subject over the past two years. Nor can they discuss the student’s ranking in a class, or their estimated mark or the level at which an estimated mark is to be provided in a subject.

However, students remain students of the school until the end of the school term. In terms of the school’s role in supporting the wellbeing of Leaving Certificate students, the role of the Student Support Team as set out in the guidance issued recently to schools, should remain available until the end of the school term”.

Update May10th

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As no doubt you are aware the Minister for Education announced the cancellation of the Leaving Certificate exams on Friday last. This announcement has left many unanswered questions with regard to both what is to happen in relation to tuition for LC students for the remainder of the school academic year and how the process of calculating grades is to be done. Cork ETB, on behalf of the school, is seeking answers from the DES to these questions. In the meantime, all tuition for leaving certificate students is suspended pending further clarification.
