Ethics Policy

OGHS School Ethics Policy:
Academic Honesty: Academic honesty is a strict expectation of all students enrolled in the Escondido Union High School District. Students are to do their own work on all school assignments and tests (unless otherwise directed by the teacher). Acts of academic dishonesty, which will not be tolerated, are listed and defined below:
* Cheating on Tests: Any intentional giving or use of external assistance relating to an examination, test or quiz, without express permission of the teacher. No cell phones will be permitted to be out during testing.
* Fabrication: Any intentional falsification or invention of data, citation, or other authority in an academic exercise.
* Unauthorized Collaboration: Intentional collaboration on an assignment between a student and another person, if the teacher does not expressly permit such collaboration.
* Plagiarism: Any intentional use of another's ideas, words, or work as one's own. Plagiarism includes the
misuse of published material and the work of other students.
* Theft or Alteration of Materials: Any intentional and unauthorized taking,concealment, or alteration of student, teacher, or library materials, this includes the use of cameras and cell phones.

Failure to observe the rules relating to academic honesty will result in consequences to be determined by site administrator(s) and the instructor. At Escondido High School, we believe in strong ethical decisions and behavior. In order to promote growth in ethical areas, the following policy is enforced. Students who cheat or plagiarize on any test, quiz, report, computer disk, homework, in-class assignment or any
school-related test (PSAT, SAT, CAHSEE, ACT, etc.) are subject to Escondido High School Ethics Policy, which is listed below. Helping another student on an exam or assignment is also a violation of the Ethics Policy if the instructor designates students are to work on their own. Violations on a national exam (PSAT, SAT, etc.) will result in removal from any leadership position for the rest of the year.

Student Disciplinary Interventions:
Warning: Student meets with an Assistant Principal and the A/P conferences with parent over the student conduct. This is usually for minor infractions of the student conduct code. A warning is made to the student and this is entered into the student’s disciplinary record. A recommendation may be made by the assistant principal for the student to be referred to the school Student Support Team (SST) or for outside counseling.
