Using another person’s work, as one’s own is academic dishonesty or cheating. Students who are detected
using cheat sheets, copying another’s work or submitting another’s work as his/her own will result in a “0”
being given for that assignment or test. Students who allow others to copy their work are also subject to
disciplinary action or loss of grades for the assignment. On the first offense of cheating, parents will be
notified by the teacher. On a second or subsequent offense additional disciplinary action may be imposed.
