Academic dishonesty is inexcusable conduct. A zero will be given to
the student for the assignment involved, the teacher will contact the
parents, and the student will be referred to the administration.
Subsequent offenses will result in escalating consequences.
Plagiarism is an act of academic dishonesty. It is a form of cheating
and will be dealt with accordingly. Collins Hill High School defines
plagiarism as a student taking credit for work that is not his or her
own work. Examples of plagiarism include, but are not limited to the
- Buying or using any sort of paper or project form another person
or service, such as those on the Internet, and turning it in as the
product of your own work;
- Turning in someone else’s work as your own with or without that person’s knowledge;
- Copying statements from a source and using them without proper use of quotation marks and citations;
- Paraphrasing information from a source without proper citations.
