ACADEMIC INTEGRITY EXPECTATIONS
Cheating and Copying
Each student is expected to do his/her own work. Copying from another student's responses on an examination, from another student's report, or another student's homework is dishonest and unacceptable. If the other student is an accomplice in the act, that student is equally guilty of academic dishonesty.
High School: Students will be required to redo the original or alternative assignment after school for 50% credit. On the second and subsequent offenses they will receive no credit.
Plagiarism is the appropriation of words or ideas of another and passing them off as one's own. Quoting from a published work without the use of quotation marks and identification of the author is plagiarism. The use of ideas and information in another person's work, even if that person's exact words are not copied, is also plagiarism, unless documented properly. Individual student assignments require students to submit their own individual work even if they were allowed to work together during the process.
High School: Students will be required to redo the original assignment for 50% credit. On the second and subsequent offenses they will be required to redo the original or alternative assignment and receive no credit.
