       Academic Integrity

Plagiarism 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 the make-up work in a satisfactory manner and within the time specified by the district policy.  Student should check the calendar for the assignments.  Get the assignment and directions from the teacher.

 

       Missing Work/Late Work:

          Assignments given in this class are not optional.  Assignments will be posted in the classroom and given orally.  If you do not do the assignment you will receive a zero for the assignment, until the assignment is turned in, work turned in a week late will remain a zero.  Late work will be accepted at 10 points off per day.
