Academic Integrity Policy

Students are expected to complete all CVHS course work with “academic integrity.” Academic integrity focuses on honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility. Students should complete all coursework in a manner that embodies these values and promotes hard work and honest effort. A violation of the CVHS academic integrity policy is considered academic misconduct. 

Academic misconduct includes:
  • Completing coursework for another person.
  • Allowing coursework to be completed by another person.
  • Plagiarizing coursework from another person and submitting as your own work.
  • Maliciously submitting incomplete work.  Resubmissions will be deducted 25%.
  • Using the internet to search for quiz & test answers.
  • Academic misconduct falsifies your understandings and undermines an ability to determine how well you're doing in the course. Such misconduct may result in a lower course overall grade, expulsion from the course, and the possibility of disqualification of future CVHS course enrollments.
During Final Tests:
  • The following will be considered as cheating:
  • Any additional windows or tabs open 
  • Any use of a electronic device including a phone
  • Use of any notes other than the approved 1 page (1 sided) notes
  • This list is not all inclusive.  Any student action that is not in compliance with academic integrity may be subject to being treated as cheating.
If caught cheating:
  • Student will be asked to stop taking the final test.
  • Test must be submitted.
  • Student will be asked to leave the testing facility
  • Student will be required to take an Academic Integrity Policy mini course.
  • Course teacher and parent/guardian will be notified.
  • A 15% penalty will be applied to the 1 test retake if allowed.
  • When student is ready for a test retake, they must notify the CVHS via email.  Students may have 2 days to review course material prior to testing.  (Students must give CVHS office 24 hours notice prior to re-testing).
