    Ethics Policy

    for Corona Fundamental I.S.

     

     

    Students of Corona Fundamental Intermediate School are subject to an Ethics Policy, which deals with students who cheat. All tests, quizzes, reports, or other school related assignments are subject to this policy.

     

    Students are expected to refrain from all forms of cheating, including lying, plagiarism and fraud. Copying the work of another person with the intent of representing it as your own is plagiarism. Allowing someone to copy your work is scholastic fraud. Both plagiarism and scholastic fraud are forms of cheating that damage the entire school community. Cheating also applies to club and leadership activities. Cheating hinders the academic success of all students by limiting the learning of the cheaters and depriving ethical students of accolades and recognition honestly earned.

     

    Cheating includes looking at another student’s paper or talking during an exam. Helping another student cheat on an exam or assignment is also a violation of the Ethics Policy if it has been made clear by the instructor that students are to work on their own. The following action will be taken in regard to students in violation of this policy.
