Cheating – copying another student’s work, and includes both giving and receiving information on an academic assignment. Plagiarism- the intentional or unintentional use of another person’s words, ideas, or data without providing the proper acknowledgement of the source through quotations, references, or footnotes.
Fabrication/Falsification – inventing or distorting the origin or content of information used as authority. This includes: 1) citing a source that does not exist 2) citing information from a source that does not actually contain the information that was cited, 3) Listing a bibliography source when the source was neither referenced nor cited in the assignment.
When instances of academic dishonesty have been discovered, typically, either reduced credit or no credit (i.e. a “zero”) will be awarded.
Student lockers are school property and remain at all times under the control of the school; however, students are expected to assume full responsibility for the security of their lockers. Periodic general inspections of lockers may be conducted by school authorities for any reason at any time without notice, without student consent, and without a search warrant.
Responsibilities of the student: 1) Arrive at school prior to the first bell (7:40) 2) Be seated and ready for instruction in each class before the bell rings. 3) Bring to each class those books and materials necessary to make attendance meaningful. 4) Remain in class for the entire class period.
All absences must be explained in writing no later than three days after a student returns to school. If you have more than twelve absences in a school year, you may be held back. Only an excused absence permits work to be made up. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the teacher within three days of returning to arrange for make-up work.
Credit for class work is not permitted for students suspended from school.
The school is not responsible for attempting to recover lost or stolen cell phones when students have not properly secured them. Cell phones cannot be audible during the school day If a student is found to be using his/her cell phone during the school day, the phone will be taken from the student and given to a school administrator.
Students may only use personal technology during school hours when given specific permission to do so by their teacher or a school administrator. Students are responsible for keeping their device safe while in transit and at school. School staff and/or bus drivers will not be responsible for attempting to recover lost or stolen personal technology when the student has not properly secured it.
