To implement the teachers replacement plan, the EEB1 follows the rules of the European Schools which stipulate that :
- a replacement must be made ideally by a teacher of the same language and subject, if not a teacher of the same language and the same subject area ;
- an absent teacher is replaced where possible as from the second day of absence (this is for an absence for several consecutive days) ;
- religion and ethics lessons are not replaced;
- the replacements are made for S1-S5 classes, for S6 and S7 only when the absences are for a longer duration or for exceptional cases.
May we also state that S1, S2 and S3 are routinely sent to the study room or to the library in case of a non-replaced teacher.
