Academic Honesty Policy

Honesty is a key character trait valued at Royal High School.  Students are expected, unless so directed by the teacher, to do their own work.  Cheating is defined as stealing, providing, or receiving information, knowledge, or work from another without teacher permission.  This includes using cheat notes on paper, books, desks, hands, computer disks, or anywhere else in the vicinity of the student's workstation.  It also includes copies of tests or answers to tests.  Plagiarism, the practice of copying verbatim written material from other sources (encyclopedias, etc.) without providing appropriate documentation, is also regarded as cheating.

 

Cheating offenses, including plagiarism, are reported with appropriate documentation by the individual teacher to the Assistant Principal, so that the offenses are cumulative throughout the student's enrollment at Royal.  Any student who gains or gives answers to tests or other class work by stealing tests, test answer keys or teacher's manuals will automatically be subject to Level Two violation (see below).  Changing grades or altering a teacher's records in any way will also result in a Level Two violation.  There is also the possibility of suspension or expulsion from Royal High School and/or the Simi Valley Unified School District.

 

FIRST OFFENSE: LEVEL ONE

The student caught cheating will receive a zero on the test, quiz, or assignment.  This grade will count in the computation of the student's grade.  The parents and Assistant Principal will be notified by the teacher.  The parents and student will be notified of the consequences of future offenses.

 

SECOND OFFENSE: LEVEL TWO

Within the school year of the first offense, the student referred for cheating in the same or ANY OTHER CLASS will be penalized as above, AND the grade for the class where the second offense occurred will automatically drop one full grade.  Parents will be required to meet in conference with the teacher, student, and Assistant Principal before the student may be readmitted to the class.  Further penalties, including the possibility of failure in that class may be applied, if deemed appropriate to the seriousness of the violation.

 

THIRD OFFENSE: LEVEL THREE

Within the school year of the first and second offense, a third violation IN ANY CLASS will require parents to meet in conference with the teacher, student, and Assistant Principal.  Once the information has been verified, the student will be dropped with a "Fail" from the class where the third offense occurred.
