 Use hidden reference sheets during a test.  Use a cell phone in any way during class.  Use programmed material in watches or calculators when prohibited.  Exchange answers with others (either give or receive answers).  Take someone else’s assignment and submit it as your own.  Talk to another student or look at their work during a test.  Submit material written or designed by someone else without giving the author/artist credit. That 15 is plagiarism.  Take credit for group work when little contribution was made.  Do not follow specific guidelines on cheating established by your teacher. All assignments are to be completed independently unless the teacher directs otherwise. Students caught cheating will receive no credit or reduced credit on that assignment or test and will be referred to the school’s administration. Parents/Guardians will be notified of the incident and the penalty imposed. GRADING Report cards are issued on a semester basis. Teachers determine the grades given to each student. The determination of the student’s grade by the teacher, in the absence of an error, by law is final. Teacher error or data entry error will be corrected by the teacher. Students or parents seeking clarification of a grade or assistance in the class should make an appointment with the appropriate teacher, and if the error is not resolved at this level, file a “Grade Appeal” Form in the office (only for semester grades). However, the classroom teacher must approve and support any grade changes. Any additional appeals for grading will be handled on a case by case basis. The grading criteria upon which any grading system is based may include such items as test and quiz scores, homework completion, oral and written reports, research papers, participation in class activities, or similar evidence of the quality of the student’s mastery of the subject content. A grade may be affected by missed class work, incomplete homework, or lack of class participation. Teachers use Aeries as a grading student information system. Aeries Student Information System will allow you as a parent/guardian to easily view your child’s grades and attendance; and it will allow you to communicate electronically with your child’s teachers.
