Academic Honesty Policy
- A student uses anyone else’s knowledge or work and says it is his/her own.
- A student uses a “cheat sheet” while taking an examination in class.
- A student turns in an assignment that someone else has written.
- A student puts a quotation in a term paper without its being footnoted properly or without giving proper credit or identifying the person who wrote it.
- “Student A” knowingly and willfully allows “Student B” to use his/her work and “Student B” presents it as his/her own work.
Once the teacher determines that cheating has occurred, the assignment will be graded with an “F” and a zero will be recorded in the grade book. Students violating the honesty policy will be referred to the administrator and suspended from class pending a conference and a recording of the incident. A subsequent or second incident of cheating in the same or another class will result in student referral to the Site Discipline Review Committee which may choose a consequence from the following options:
- Recommend failure of the course.
- Recommend behavior contract and/or community service.
- Recommend a zero on the assignment and one-day suspension from school.
