Academic Integrity Code--UPDATE

**Repeat**After reviewing and discussing the academic integrity code and applying it to some incidents, we have decided to revise the consequences for the 1st offense. Initially, the first offense has a behavioral referral for the learner. We are changing this consequence to a warning.

After aligning the Academic Integrity Code to our core values, the 1st offense consequence of behavioral referral does not give the learner an opportunity to learn and grow from a mistake. At OVS, we are always learning about our program and making it the best we can be. This is an example of just that. Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
