Timpview High School is committed to the preservation of academic integrity and will act to deter any breach which jeopardizes the school’s ability to validate grades or evaluate student performance. Adherence to a strict code of ethical behavior is the responsibility of every student. The following constitute academic fraud and are deemed to violate the school’s academic integrity policy:
- Submitting work which is not original. Students who obtain work, assignments, projects or writing from others (parents, students, tutors, etc), or from internet or print sources are culpable. Work that is edited or altered by an outside source so that it is significantly different from its original form is also unacceptable. Failing to credit original sources for words or ideas is plagiarism. Students should not “borrow” phrases, sentences, or paragraphs without quotation marks and appropriate citation. Casual paraphrasing does not make the work original. Similarly, students should not claim as their own ideas which they take from other writers.
- Violating the integrity of examinations. Students should not obtain or provide answers from any source during a test/quiz. Sharing information with anyone who has not taken the test/quiz also violates this policy.
- Unacceptable collaborating. Students should follow teacher guidelines regarding collaboration on assignments or projects, completing all work independently unless expressly instructed otherwise. When allowed, collaboration requires equal rigor from all participants.
- Lying or misrepresenting facts either by altering or omitting the truth to gain academic advantage, such as altering documents/grades, or lying to avoid taking a test, turning in an assignment, or accepting a consequence.
Any instance of academic dishonesty as determined by the instructor will result in disciplinary action by the instructor and/or administrators as follows:
- Instructors have discretion to take appropriate action such as contacting parents, giving no credit on the assignment in question or failing the student for the term.
- Teachers will document breaches of academic integrity and may notify administrators who keep appropriate records in the student’s file.
- Three or more documented violations may result in the student’s being denied honor status at graduation, recognition on Honor Roll, nomination as Sterling Scholar, or membership in National Honor Society. Notation on a student’s transcript my accompany flagrant or repeated violations.
Students who directly witness or have evidence of academic dishonesty have an ethical responsibility to take appropriate action.
