Dear Parent/Guardian,

Please see the latest communication from the Department of Education concerning registration for calculated grades.

 

 

Dear Principal

Thank you for your continued assistance in supporting Leaving Certificate students this year to get Calculated Grades so that they can  progress to further education and employment.

We are aware that schools are closed at this time but we would appreciate your further assistance in alerting  students,  if this is feasible, that the Calculated Grades  Students Portal will open at 12am on Monday 20 July and close at 4pm Monday 27 July to allow LC and LCA (Year 1 & 2) students to opt-in  to receive Calculated Grades.

You should note that as we have captured the student contact details previously,  all students will receive direct contact by text and email about the portal re-opening so the school contact would serve to further remind them.

The Department is also publishing some further information about calculated grades as follows;
