As you may be aware, members of the ASTI teaching union have been directed not to cooperate with certain in-school assessment elements of the new Junior Cycle Profile of Achievement.
This currently relates to your daughter’s ‘Assessment Task’ in English.
Arising from discussions between the ASTI and the Department of Education and Skills, a set of proposals will be put to a ballot of ASTI members in January. If accepted, these proposals will allow for the completion of the Assessment Task in English at a later date. We will monitor developments and keep parents and students informed.
