UPDATED CHEATING/ PLAGIARISM POLICY FOR CLASSROOM
As of Monday, October 3, 2022, the Cheating Policy in my classroom as been UPDATED to be the same policy as outlined in the SAHS Student Handbook.
It states "Students who engage in any form of cheating will be denied credit for the assignment and a parent/guardian will be contacted by the teacher. A record of the offense will be kept in the student's discipline file. Continued acts of cheating/ plagiarism may result in disciplinary action. An assignment that has received a zero as a result of cheating or plagiarism cannot be made up."
Therefore, anyone caught cheating or assisting in a classmate in cheating will receive a zero that will remain in the gradebook, a referral will be written, and parent/guardian will be contacted.
Cheating/ Plagiarism Policy is located on Page 11 of the Student Handbook.
I am excited to be your teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. I am a SC Native, wife, mother of 3 (2 sons & 1 daughter), and lifetime learner. I have taught Middle Level Science for 10 years and High School Science for 6 years. I am the Interact Co-Sponsor, Serve on the School Improvement Council, and a member of the Leadership Committee at SAHS.
