One of the most important goals of the CEDEI Foundation is to guarantee our students the highest level of learning within a peaceful, pleasurable and safe environment, which is why the following rules have been created:
Total or partial copying on an exam or plagiarism of any other academic work will result in a zero (0) and a verbal reprimand from the teacher. If there should be a second occasion of copying, the student will receive an Incident Report and his/her parents will be informed (if underage). An Incident Report will be made by the teacher for every occasion and filed in the student’s records.
Attendance and Grading
In the English Program, absences are not justified since learning requires commitment. There are two exceptions to being absent: (1) medical reasons verified by doctor’s certificates, and (2) unavoidable school commitments verified by school certificates. These certificates need to be presented to the English Program's Coordinator before the teacher will be notified that the absence can be marked as justified.
Regular Courses: The student is allowed 8 absences to still receive a certificate. With 9 absences the student fails the course.
Intensive Courses: The student is allowed 4 absences to still receive a certificate. With 5 absences the student fails the course.
Saturday Courses: Because students have 4 hours of instruction on Saturdays, students are allowed only 1 absence to still receive a certificate. With 2 absences the student fails the course.
Tutorials: Absences can be made-up only if the student has called at least two hours ahead of time to advise his/her tutor that they will be absent. If the student doesn’t call, the absence is not justified.
All exceptions will be decided by the English Department on a case-by-case basis.
Students will only pass a course if they attain a minimum final average score of 70%, and they must achieve 65% in their final exam, independent of their final average score.
No student can change their level or time of class without the previous authorization of the Director of English Programs.
