Academic IntegrityI have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy for cheating. Any student caught cheating will receive a zero for the assignment, a call home to parents, a BL1, and a 1page essay on academic integrity. This also applies to anyone assisting someone in cheating. To clarify, seeking out resources online to help you solve a problem is NOT cheating. Asking a parent or sibling to help you is NOT cheating. Asking Ms. Lagos for help, even if she walks you through every step of the problem, is NOT cheating. If anyone or anything gives you the answer, that IS cheating.
