Academic Honesty   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Board of Trustees believes that personal integrity is basic to all solid achievement. Students will reach their full potential only by being honest with themselves and with others.

The Board expects students to respect the educational purpose underlying all school activities. All students need to prove to themselves that they can do successful work as a result of their own efforts. The Board expects that student will not cheat, lie, or plagiarize.

Each school shall provide an environment that encourages honesty and shall develop guidelines for governing academic honesty.

Students must know that their teachers will not ignore or condone cheating and that anyone discovered cheating will be penalized.
