Plagiarism and academic dishonesty are serious offenses that can carry significant consequences both here at SHS and in your lifelong pursuits. Therefore, it is vital that you understand what constitutes plagiarism and academic dishonesty.
The SHS Student Handbook defines "Cheating/Academic Integrity" as follows: "Cheating is defined as: copying or paraphrasing without citing the source of information or using the academic work of others for school assignments; the solicitation of another student's work; and student inquiry of another's work while taking a test. Students who violate the cell phone or electronic device policy during an exam may be considered cheating, possibly resulting in loss of exam credit. Minimum: Loss of privileges, assignment, test and/or course credit, loss of participation in honor societies/detention. Maximum: Saturday school/suspension, and possible removal from that class, loss of class credit."
