Academic Integrity

Academic integrity is important to The Crenshaw School’s high expectations for student learning and conduct.  In all aspects of learning, the student must adhere to academic honesty.  This is defined as performing all work independently and representing one’s self and efforts honestly.  All teachers, students, and parents are asked to adhere to this philopsophy.

Violations of Academic Integrity

  • Cheating – All assignments are to be completed alone, unless directed otherwise by the teacher.  This includes any help from phones, computers, notecards, notes, ipods, calculators, or any device that offers assistance.  If a calculator is allowed, information is not to be stored for retrieval. 
  • Collaboration – All work submitted is to be completed by the student.  Unless stated by the teacher, homework, tests, research paper, or any other assignment must be done alone.  Group work is not allowed unless the teacher has stated that it is permissible.
  • Submitting the same assignment for different classes – Every assignment is assigned in order to assist in student growth.  Therefore, each assignment must be original to the class.  Repeating work and handing in the same assignment is called self-plagiarism.
  • Assisting others in misconduct – Helping other students cheat by giving them information of yours is also in violation of the academic integrity code. 
  • Attempting to cheat – An attempt to cheat and violate the academic integrity code is a violation and will be treated as such.  The actual act of cheating does not have to be complete to receive a consequence.
  • Plagiarism – An intentional or unintentional use of another person’s words or ideas.  You must cite all sources in MLA format or another format dictated to you by your teacher.
