ACADEMIC DISHONESTY

Academic honesty is a fundamental expectation for all students at Central High School. Academic dishonesty is considered one of the most egregious violations of our value of academic integrity. Academic dishonesty includes the following: any action involving cheating or deception done to improve a student's grade and any action that aids another student in committing an act of academic dishonesty. Some examples of academic dishonesty are copying test or homework answers, copying written material and presenting it as one's own, and letting another student copy one's work. Students involved in cheating on test, homework assignments, research papers, etc. will be penalized. A portion of the penalty will include a zero for the assignment with no opportunity for making up the work. The teacher will write a discipline referral, contact the parents and notify the appropriate principal so that the appropriate consequences can be assigned by using a graduated scale based upon the number of prior offenses.

1.      First Offense: 2 sessions Saturday School

2.      Second Offense: 5 days of In-School Suspension

3.      Third Offense: 10 Out-of-School Suspension Days and possible recommendation for Long-term suspension
