ACADEMIC HONESTY/PLAGIARISM

Academic dishonesty in all its forms, in course work, on examinations, or in other academically related activities, includes but is not limited to the following:

  1. Copying from another student or knowingly allowing another to copy.
  2. Using unauthorized materials and/or technologies.
  3. Plagiarizing work, which means the use of any other person’s work without proper citation.

When a student has been found to break the academic honesty policy, the following will occur:

First Offense

  1. The student will receive a zero for the assignment/test/paper, etc.
  2. The teacher will call the parents.
  3. The teacher will write a referral to school administration for appropriate disciplinary action.

Plagiarism is the act of using or copying or stealing someone else’s idea or work and pretending that you thought of it or created it.

  1. An example of plagiarism is when you copy a paper/web page or sections of a paper/web page from the Internet, put your name on it and turn it in as if you wrote it.
  2. An example of plagiarism is when you buy a term paper or essay written by someone else and attempt to use it as your own.
  3. Directly quoting another person’s actual words, whether oral or written.
  4. An example of plagiarism is paraphrasing materials without correctly attributing the source or research text.
