Communication at Esbjerg Gymnasium

At Esbjerg Gymnasium all written communication between students and teachers go through the school’s intranet, Lectio. Students are expected to log into Lectio and read all relevant information daily. Lectio is used for:
 

  • Overall schedule and changes in schedule

  • Homework

  • Assignments

  • IAs and exam papers

  • Grade reports, including comments and recommendations

  • Absence, including registration, administration, comments and warnings

  • Calendar, meetings and student activities

  • Communication between teachers and students including messages and documents

 

Communication of a more formal matter including information about Covid-19, Birthday Ball, parents’ evening, parents-teacher meetings, grade reports, official warnings etc. is sent to e-Boks. If a student is below the legal age of 18, a copy is sent to the student’s parents or legal guardian on e-Boks. If a student is of legal age (18 or over) information is only sent to themselves.

 

It is compulsory for all living in Denmark above the age of 15 to have a personal e-Boks account. It is the owner of the e-Boks account’s obligation to check regularly for new messages and information. 

 

When a student begins at Esbjerg Gymnasium, they are each given an individual login to Lectio.

Parents or legal guardians are not given access to Lectio, and they will not be given access to Lectio by the school. Whether a student agrees to share their login with their parents or guardians is an individual choice. We assume that students at Esbjerg Gymnasium have sufficient maturity to share any relevant information, that includes homework, grades and written warnings.

 

If the student is above the legal age of 18 years, the school is not allowed to share any information (grade and/or absence reports, written warnings etc.) without written consent from the student in question. This complies with both Danish law and the European General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR), and for parents or legal guardians it means that they will not be consulted, if a student is for example is issued a written warning for absence or plagiarism, if the student in question is 18 years or older.
