CONSEQUENCES FOR VIOLATION ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY
When a teacher determines that a student has committed an act of academic dishonesty, the teacher shall submit an academic integrity policy referral to the student’s academic counselor, which will be documented and placed in the students’ cumulative file. The counselor will report the violation to the student’s parents either by phone or email. Depending on the severity of the offense and the number of previous offenses, detention, suspension, or expulsion may be warranted. Dishonesty may also be documented and included on student’s cumulative folder.
There are two distinct categories of offenses outlined in the RHS Academic Integrity Policy: copying someone else’s homework or classwork which is considered a minor offense compared with cheating on an exam, test, or quiz and plagiarizing a paper, essay, lab report, etc. which is considered a major offense. A full chart showing the consequences for violation of Rosemead High School’s Academic Integrity Policy is found on the school’s website at www.rhs.schoolloop.com
Homework is assigned to give students extra practice in their studies. Our teachers plan well-designated homework assignments that relate directly to class work and extend student’s learning beyond the classroom. Parents are encouraged to help each child set a time and place for completion of homework assignments.
Student planners are required for RHS students. They are used for organizing homework, planning for projects, and to help students keep track of special events and deadlines. Agendas include student out-of-class passes. Parents are encouraged to monitor these pages and have conversations with their children about time spent out of the classroom.
