Academic Honesty   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board believes that academic honesty and personal integrity are fundamental components of a student's education and character development. The Board expects that students will not cheat, lie, plagiarize or commit other acts of academic dishonesty.

All electronic devices must be powered down during State testing and placed inside a student's backpack or bag. Student backpacks will be lined up in front of the room where the testing is taking place. Teachers may require students to follow a similar procedure during local assessments or during regular class activities.
