Resources Including Textbooks and Loaned Materials
It is expected that students will take reasonable care of those materials on loan to them. Students with outstanding textbooks and/or course materials will be expected to pay for the replacement cost of the textbooks/materials owing.
Please refer to your agenda for the Attendance Policy, Late Policy, and expectations for Classroom Behaviour.
Late & Missed Work
In fairness to all students, late assignments will not be accepted after the subject teacher returns the marked assignment, unless there are extraordinary circumstances. Students have an obligation to be present for all examinations, tests, quizzes, presentations and other evaluations unless alternative arrangements have been approved in advance by the subject teacher. Failure to do so could result in a "0" mark in accordance with the TDSB Evaluation and Reporting Policy. Students who are on a prolonged absence must notify the school. Prolonged absences will place the student's credit in jeopardy.
Academic Honesty Policy - PLAGIARISM
When you intentionally, or unintentionally, use or pass off someone else’s words, ideas, or images as your own, you are plagiarizing. Unless you give proper credit, you are stealing and it is wrong. Plagiarism is a form of intellectual dishonesty that includes cutting and pasting from the Internet, buying or borrowing an essay, or reusing an essay without the teacher’s approval. Students who plagiarize may expect a mark of zero and may face other serious consequences.
To avoid plagiarism:
- understand what plagiarism is
- give yourself enough time to complete the research project
- make careful notes and summaries throughout the research process
- respond to the notes with your own thoughts and ideas
- accurately record quotations, paraphrased information, and page numbers
- If in doubt, ask your teacher or teacher-librarian, or cite the source just in case.
Consequences For Academic Dishonesty
The following disciplinary action will occur in the event of academic dishonesty:
• Reprimand from the teacher
• Remediation with teacher
• Zero on the assignment
• Teacher contacts parent(s)/guardian(s)
• Discussion with V.P.
• V.P. contacts parent(s)/guardian(s) and informs student's teachers
