Skyview English Department
Any student found plagiarizing on any assignment will be dealt with in the following manner:
1st offense - 0 for the assignment
2nd offense - 0 for the assignment (whether it occurs in the same class or not) - students will receive an F for that six-week grading period, in that class. If a student does receive an F for the six-week grading period, the percentage grade for that F will be recorded as one (1) point below the established passing percentage required in that class. If the student has already earned a lower percentage than that, s/he will keep the percentage points s/he earned.
3rd offense - (whichever class it occurs) - student will receive an F for the semester, in that class.
Any incidences of plagiarism will be reported to the Assistant Principal and will be put in the student's discipline file. The plagiarism policy is cumulative over the four (4) years the student spends at Skyview High School.
