GaVS Academic Dishonesty Policy (From the GaVS Student Handbook)

Students in a "virtual building" need to follow certain rules. As a Georgia Virtual School student, you must conduct yourself with the highest standards of honesty.

Any attempt to cheat, plagiarize, falsify information, or receive credit for work you did not do will be considered dishonest behavior and will be dealt with accordingly by the instructor, facilitator, and the Georgia Virtual School Program administration. Unless your teacher expressly states otherwise, all work must be original and entirely the student's own work without any outside help, which includes other students, parents, textbooks, internet or any other outside source. Assignments that require documentation and/or references must adhere to guidelines presented by the teacher. When in doubt, clarify with your teacher before beginning an assignment or submitting it.

Academic dishonesty and the sending/creating/posting of any inappropriate material will result in one or more of the following actions:

● Loss of grade points

● Disciplinary action via local school in accordance with local school or district policy

● Removal from the course

● Failure to receive credit for the course

● Loss of eligibility to take future Georgia Virtual School courses.

Academic honesty is very important to your success as an online learner.

Remediation Opportunities.

Many of you have inquired about remediation opportunities in your courses. They will be posted in the next few weeks. Check your course NEWS for details. Once they are posted contact me with any questions you may have about completing or submitting items.
