Academic Honesty: Cheating occurs when a student obtains credit for OR assists others in obtaining credit for work that is not his or her own. Plagiarism is the act of appropriating the ideas, language, or work of another passing them off as one’s own product.
Examples of cheating and/or plagiarism include, but are not limited to, the following:
*Cheating in my room for another class is STILL CHEATING. If you cheat for ANY class in my room, I will take the assignment and will contact that teacher as well as the administration.
*If your phone makes any type of appearance during a test or quiz class period, that is an automatic 0 on the assessment, referral to the office, and a phone call home. This is a department policy.
Consequences of Academic Dishonesty – Per Student Handbook:
Writing/ Editing Advice-
Per our department policy, you may not ask another English teacher to proofread your work. They may answer specific questions, but it isn’t fair to the rest of your classmates to get that kind of help.
