Cheating and Plagiarism Policy

All students are expected to conduct themselves with a high degree of integrity.  Cheating and plagiarism are not acceptable behaviors at CWCS.  Instances of cheating and plagiarism include but are not limited to: cheat or crib notes; looking at and using other students’ answers or work; copying homework, class work, or tests; and doing another student’s work.  Copying or paraphrasing work from the Internet, from a book, a magazine, a newspaper, a song, or other sources without the proper citing of sources is prohibited.  Using facts that are not generally known or statistical data, or copying maps, charts or graphs without using the author’s name and a bibliography, is also prohibited.  ESs, tutors, course instructors, and the school counselor have the option of using an Internet evaluative tool that will instantly identify plagiarized material.  Students caught cheating or plagiarizing are subject to an “F” or “Zero” on the assignment or test, an “F” grade for the class, and/or suspension, as deemed appropriate by the school administration.
