Academic Integrity

Plagiarism and cheating in the classroom are viewed as unacceptable by Hamilton Junior/Senior High School. Individual policies and consequences for cheating or taking credit for another’s ideas or work will be made clear by each teacher. Punishment could include, but is not limited to, loss of credit for the assignment, loss of credit for that class, and/or disciplinary measures such as detention or even suspension. Repeated incidents of plagiarism or cheating will be dealt with at the discretion of the classroom teacher and may or may not involve the administration. (BOE adopted 9-17-14)
