Academic Honesty
Plagiarism or Cheating
Plagiarism can easily be avoided by giving credit to the author.  When a situation arises where plagiarism is suspected, it is the responsibility of the student to demonstrate the work to be his/her own. Plagiarism includes
  • using whole sentences or paragraphs of another as your own;
  • paraphrasing someone else’s argument;
  • presenting someone else’s ideas or line of thinking as if it were your own; and
  • submitting a project, assignment, homework or essay that is not your own work.
Cheating includes:
  • copying work of others on a test or exam
  • unauthorized giving/receiving of information during a test or exam
  • bringing unauthorized material into a test or exam
  • submission of same/similar work for evaluation in two courses unless both teachers have given prior approval
Depending on the severity of the incident, one or more of the following steps will be taken:
  • students may be referred to an administrator;
  • parents/guardians will be contacted by the teacher and/or administration;
  • students may be required to complete the Library “Academic Integrity” workshop;
  • a central record and documentation will be kept of all incidents involving plagiarism or cheating; and
  • the Administration, in consultation with the teacher, will determine appropriate consequences for repeat offenders and notify the parent.
