Academic Honesty Policy
Academic dishonesty is a divisive and destructive force within a school community. Each individualact of cheating or plagiarism affects all of Stuyvesant. It unfairly rewards those students who cheat,and hurts honest students’ chances of acceptance into specialized courses and college. This inequity, inturn, discourages honesty and spawns even more cheating. In addition, academic dishonestycontributes to a poisonous atmosphere of mistrust among students, faculty and administration, andtarnishes Stuyvesant’s reputation as a whole. Examples of academic dishonesty include:
Presenting the ideas of others (either by paraphrasing or direct quotation) without giving credit to the source.
Thisapplies equally to a single phrase or an entire essay.
Using secondary sources, even for research, if a teacher has instructed students not to do so.
Failing to provide adequate citations for material obtained through online sources.
Copying from someone else’s exam, paper, homework or lab.
Allowing someone to copy or submit one’s work as his/her own.
Using notes or other materials (including cell phones, calculators, computers, etc.) during an exam withoutauthorization.
Submitting the same paper in more than one course without the knowledge and approval of the instructors involved.
Knowingly participating in a group project which presents plagiarized materials.
Giving answers to exam questions to another student or receiving answers to exam questions from another student.
Students who engage in any of the above activities will receive no credit on the assignment inquestion, and their parents will be notified. Students are also subject to suspension for engagingin academic dishonesty, and the suspension may be reported to colleges.
Each teacher is obligated to inform students that they must not engage in this kind of behavior, and toexplain any other types of academic dishonesty that may pertain to their particular subject, class,assignment or exam. Students should report instances of academic dishonesty to teachers, guidancecounselors or department heads.I have read and understand Stuyvesant’s Academic Honesty Policy.
