Appendix 2: Procedures to Ensure Academic Honesty
Academic honesty is a fundamental cornerstone of student learning. Breaches of academic honesty are
intentional attempts to gain credit for work that is not the student's own. All breaches of academic honesty
will be reported to the school administration and a plan of action will be implemented. Students may lose
the opportunity to demonstrate achievement of course expectations by means of that summative
assessment task, but achievement of those expectations may still be demonstrated on an alternative
summative assessment task. Disciplinary action will be taken, and will be based on the response continuum
outlined below.
Response Continuum for Breaches of Academic Honesty






























documentation of occurrence by administration
conference called by administration with teacher, student, parents/guardians
suspension
loss of credit due to lack of sufficient evidence of achievement
The grade level of the student, the maturity of the student, the number and
frequency of incidents, and the individual circumstances of the student all represent
factors for consideration in the appropriate application of this response.
