Academic Integrity Policy

An essential part of middle school education is developing a sense of academic honesty and integrity. There is zero tolerance for cheating or plagiarism. 

The following examples of academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to: 

  • Sharing or copying someone’s homework. 
  • Sharing test content before, during or after any assessment. 
  • Using a “cheat sheet”, reference materials, or electronic resources when it is not permitted. 
  • Passing along or using another student’s note sheet. 
  • Using a phone or other electronic device to share test or quiz content. 
  • Copying material from websites without citations. 
  • Taking credit for someone else’s writing/ideas. 

In the case of academic dishonesty, the teacher will notify the parents and school administration. Classroom and school consequences may apply.
