Academic Integrity: 

Plagiarism [copying] is defined as “the use of any other person’s work as one’s own and the unacknowledged use of that work in one’s own work.”  All work must be the student’s own work.  Any plagiarized work will result in a grade of zero along with a parent-teacher-administrator conference. 

 

Absences

A student will be responsible for obtaining and completing any make-up work in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified.  Student should check with the teacher for any missed assignments.  Obtain the assignment and directions from the designated folder and/or basket.

 

Missing Work:

Assignments [homework] given in this class are not optional.  Assignments/directions will be written on the student’s planner.  If a student does not do/turn in the assignment when due, the student will receive a zero for the assignment, and will have lunch detention until the assignment is satisfactorily completed and turned in; upon completion, the homework [assignment] grade will be adjusted.  Homework assignments will be given at least once a week.
