Students have a moral obligation to complete their own schoolwork. Cheating and plagiarism are wrong. Cheating is the practice of fraudulent or deceptive acts for the purpose of improving a grade or obtaining course credit or assisting another to do so. Plagiarism is a specific form of cheating which consists of the misuse of the published and/or unpublished works of another by representing the material so used as one’s own work. Students who violate this policy will receive disciplinary action.
For each day an assignment is late, points will be deducted. Grades will only be accepted up to 3 days late, with 10% taken off each day it is late. On the third day, it becomes a zero.
If a student is absent from class during a quiz or a test, students will complete the assessment within 3 to 5 class days of the missed assessment. Students may either come during tutoring hours or may have to use class time to complete the missed assessment. In regards to missed class work, students should ask the teacher for the assignment(s) upon returning to class. Always ask the teacher for the missed work after class.. The student will have five class days from his or her return to class to complete and submit the assignment(s) for full credit. Failure to do so will result in a late grade (SEE LATE WORK POLICY SECTION)
