All students are to read and understand the North Cross School Honor Code (click here for the NCS Honor Code). Students must also memorize the following statement and add it to all graded work.
I have neither given nor received any unauthorized help on this work.
- Students are required to do their own work on all assignments.
- Parents may check over work for errors in mechanics, and then have the students make the corrections, but are not to redo the work or change the basic ideas of the student.
- Parents are encouraged to look at the student's planner to make sure all assignments are completed. Asking to see the homework is recommended, instead of just asking if they have completed everything.
