Deadlines

Students are mandated to respect all deadline set by the school in any situation. This includes, but not limited to, registration for AP exams, submitting assignments, signing official documents, respecting counselor’s deadlines, and so on. Any disrespect of any of the set deadlines may result in unpleasant consequences.

Here are some examples of serious consequences that may result from the act of not respecting a set deadline. This is not an exclusive list - it is just a sample; other acts of not respecting deadlines may have unexpected consequences:

The 7 Teaching Days Rule

The ISP adopts the 7 teaching days rule in all students’ requests. In other words, any student request will need 7 teaching days to receive an answer. Here are some examples of requests that students are expected to make 7 days ahead of time:

  • Request of grades
  • Request of recommendation
  • Request of attestation

and so on.

This is not an exclusive list there are many other sample requests that can be made in this regard.

It is important to mention that urgent requests will be dealt with promptly, if a valid excuse is presented in time. The validity of excuses is solely determined upon the discretion of the Secondary Principal or ISP Director.

Here are some examples of valid and invalid excuses to urgent requests:

 This is not an exclusive list, there are many other cases that will be studied on case-by-case bases. At any rate, it is the sole responsibility of students to bear all the consequences of not abiding by deadlines the the school or other entities set and respect the 7 teaching days rule.
