  • RenWeb is the final authority for students grades. Schoology grade books do not reflect all paper assignments or dropped assignments.
  • Copying answers or digital files and claiming them as your own work is cheating and will be dealt with according to ICA policies.
  • Misuse of your Chromebook will result in loss of the device temporarily, possible demerit or detention penalties, and parental contact. If your textbook is on your device, you don’t want to lose it.
