Academic Integrity

Cheating:

  • No cheating will be accepted.
  • Any student caught cheating will receive a negative points for that assignment and their parents will be notified.
  • Any student caught cheating a second time will be referred to Administration for a one-day suspension from my class and parent conference (also receiving a negative points for that assignment) 
  • Cheating is copying anyone else’s work including other students and the Internet. Dishonesty of any kind is considered cheating.

Plagiarism is defined as- the practice of taking someone else’s work  or ideas and passing them off as one own.
