ACADEMIC INTEGRITY


Academic Integrity and Honesty


We expect students to demonstrate academic integrity and honesty throughout their entire experience at Concord High School. Awareness of expectations is critical as compliance is essential to future college, career  and personal success. Our faculty embraces the responsibility to educate students on what is expected not only in high school but beyond it.


Academic integrity and honesty includes areas such as plagiarism, cheating, falsification, and misrepresentation as related to (but not limited to) exams, out-of-class work, assignments and credentials.  Please refer to UNH's Academic Honesty Policy and UNH’s Plagiarism Tutorial for more detailed information.


The consequences for violation are as follows:


First time

Reported to administration. Teacher, then administrator calls parent/guardian. Administrator meets with student.  If the infraction involves any aspect of classwork, a high quality alternative assignment must be completed and submitted to the teacher within a short, defined, window of time. Student must also meet with their school counselor within one week of the infraction. Student will write brief statement for their record reflecting on the experience and demonstrating their newly gained understanding of academic integrity and honesty. Student will also be disciplined, including potentially an in-school suspension(s) based on the particular infraction.


Second time and subsequent times

Reported to administration. Teacher, then administrator calls parent/guardian.  Parent/guardian comes for meeting with administrator and teacher (arranged by Commons).  If the infraction involves any aspect of classwork, a high quality alternative assignment must be be completed and submitted to the teacher within a short, defined, window of time. The academic integrity violation is reported on college recommendations by the school counselor (it is a question asked on almost every recommendation and update). Student will write brief statement for their record reflecting on the experience and demonstrating their gained understanding of academic integrity and honesty. Student will also be given consequence, including potentially an in-school suspension(s) based on particular infraction.
