The William Randolph Hearst Foundation is sponsoring the 60th Annual United States Senate Youth Program. Brochures about the program may be obtained at www.ussenateyouth.org.
The United States Senate Youth Program, established in 1962 by U. S. Senate Resolution, is a unique educational experience for outstanding high school students. Each year, two student leaders from each state, the District of Columbia and the Department of Defense Education Activity spend a week in Washington, D.C., experiencing their national government in action. This year due to COVID-19 restrictions, participation in the program will be virtual. The United States Senate Youth Program Washington Week Online will be held March 5-12, 2022.
Delegates will participate in interactive online policy addresses by senators, cabinet members, officials of the Departments of State and Defense, leaders of other federal agencies and senior members of the national media. Delegates traditionally participate in a meeting with a justice of the U. S. Supreme Court and the President of the United States. Speaking events typically include in-depth question and answer sessions. In addition, each delegate will be awarded a $10,000 college scholarship.

We continue to monitor and document plagiarism. ARS believes in original work and our policy is intended to help students learn better practices so that they create unique work and not copy someone else’s work, words, and ideas.
The teachers and staff at Athens Renaissance School hold all students to a high standard and believe in academic honesty in all courses. Using outside resources is allowed when completing tasks in each course. However, the act of plagiarizing work is unacceptable. All secondary teachers will be following the strategies below to discourage this type of academic behavior. All offenses will be documented in a shared file for all teachers and administrators to view at any time. The offenses will count across all classes, not three offenses in each class.
1st Offense: Student warning and reset question and/or assignment.
2nd Offense: Entire assignment will be graded as a 0.
3rd Offense: Assignment 0 and contact with parent and ARS administration.
