ENROLMENT 2020-2021 (B1.2 & B2.2)

Captura de pantalla 2020-06-29 a las 20.17.24

Como habréis podido comprobar en la página web de la escuela, está a punto de abrirse el período de matrícula o de solicitud de vacante para el curso próximo 2020-2021. Todavía hay muchas lagunas sobre cómo van a funcionar las cosas ya que todos dependemos de la situación del COVID y de las autoridades sanitarias. Por favor, leed con detenimiento la resolución de la Consellería publicada en la página web de la escuela porque hay algunas novedades interesantes, especialmente para alguno de vosotros que me habéis expresado vuestras dudas e inquietudes…..

  • Los alumnos APTOS  que así lo soliciten pueden repetir voluntariamente  cualquier nivel, si así lo desean, optando por un curso de “Actualización de conocimientos”, manteniendo todos sus derechos de alumno oficial y pagando una tasa ordinaria ( no de repetidor, ya que como sería un curso aprobado, no sería evaluable). Es decir, cualquier alumno que haya obtenido este año una calificación de Apto en B1.2 o B2.2, podría optar a repetir  el mismo curso.

  • Los alumnos oficiales NO APTOS en la convocatoria ordinaria y extraordinaria de este curso han de solicitar plaza como repetidor ahora en julio, pero si aprobaran las PUC en septiembre  y hubieran vacantes podrían optan a promocionar al siguiente nivel. Por ejemplo, un alumno de B2.2 que ha sido no apto en mayo y en junio de este curso, ha de optar a repetir B2.2 ahora en julio. Pero si se presentara a las PUC en septiembre y aprobara y además si existieran vacantes en ese momento, podría optar a cambiar su matrícula a C1.  Lo mismo ocurriría con un alumno de B1.2… Si aprobara las PUC en septiembre podría optar a cambiar su matrícula a B2.1, no es obligatorio y siempre dependería de la existencia de vacantes.  No sé si os queda claro, he intentado simplificar la resolución al máximo.

WARNING ABOUT YOUR MARKS (B1.2 B2.2)

animated-warning-image-0016

Hi there

Aunque yo he comunicado PERSONALMENTE  a cada uno de mis alumnos sus notas finales de MAYO o de la convocatoria extraordinaria de JUNIO, todos podréis VER vuestras notas a partir del día 26 de junio online. Sin embargo y para que nadie se sorprenda o asuste, me han comunicado que los alumnos que tendrían que aprobar con cuatro notas de 5 (según la resolución extraordinaria de la Consellería  del 4 de mayo respecto a la situación Covid 19)  aparecerán como NO APTOS en la nota global de las ACTAS; esto es así porque el sistema (Itaca) no está preparado para hacer esa promoción especial y solo identifica como apto el 6. Las notas por destrezas serán las finales pero la global NO estará actualizada hasta el día 7 de julio, ya que será la secretaría quien haga esa PROMOCIÓN  EXTRAORDINARIA uno a uno y manualmente desde el centro. Espero  haberme explicado. Se os informará  de esto en la web pero RECORDAD  que la nota global no está actualizada y por eso aparecen como no aptos pero que a partir del 7 de julio ya aparecerán como Aptos si han tenido al menos cuatro notas (destrezas)  con 5 .

ENJOY YOUR SUMMER
