Participate in a class or tutoring session

En nuestra institución las asesoría no son clases, como en un colegio tradicional, sino que son tutorías en las que los docentes:

In our institution, personalized tutoring services are not classes, as in a traditional school, but are sessions in which:

Elementary

  1. Teachers will help the student to solve doubts about the lesson previously read at home. 
  2. The student may ask the teacher for assistance in carrying out the assignment of the unit in progress.
  3. Tutoring sessions have a maximum time of 1 hour, which cannot be extended or changed without authorization from the school.

The tutoring sessions are given at the request of the student depending on the chosen study plan. The tutoring sessions are not an English course, for which the student must strengthen their knowledge on their own and with the support of the representative, tutor or guardian.

LGS does not teach English as a second language, but rather offers elective courses such as ESL and language training support through a platform called Starfall. These courses do not have tutoring sessions. The English language learning courses are taught through a subsidiary institution called LATAM Bilingual Institute which has different costs, programs and conditions than those established in LGS.

Out-of-School Suspension (OSS)

An out-of-school suspension is a consequence that excludes the student from using the platform and institutional email for a period of time and gives the student time to reflect on their misconduct. Admissions will suspend the platform service for the given suspension time, however, parents have to continue paying for the current month. During suspension, students may not participate in any school-related activities such as live lessons, tutoring sessions, Gmail chats, esports, or any other extracurricular activities. Out-of-school suspensions will be considered unexcused absences and the student will be required to make up all missed work at his/her own expense.

The acts that can give rise to an OSS are:

  1. Second plagiarism attempt.
  2. Cyber bullying.
  3. Academic dishonesty.
