Honesty and Plagiarism

Honesty and Plagiarism

  • The Vestavia Hills High School Code of Student Conduct will be followed.  A copy of the Code of Conduct is in your SGA-provided student planners. Please make sure you are familiar with it.

  • Any paper with your name on it signifies that you are the author -- that the wording and the ideas are yours, with exceptions indicated by quotation marks and citations. Plagiarism is the unacknowledged use of others' materials (words and ideas). We will discuss how to avoid inadvertent plagiarism. Evidence of plagiarism will result in a zero for  the assignment and a report will be filed with the school administration

  • Students are expected to do their own work.  Any evidence of copied work or cheating in any way will result in a grade of zero (0) on the assignment,  test or quiz for all parties involved.

  • It is impossible for the teacher to know the subject of a conversation which occurs during a quiz or test;  therefore, any talking during a quiz or  test, whether related to subject matter or not, will result in a grade of zero (0) for all parties involved and an office referral.  This also insures a quiet testing environment for all students.
