Academic Honesty

Students at SPANGDAHLEM Middle School are expected to demonstrate academic honesty at all times. Plagiarism and/or cheating will not be tolerated. Students are responsible for neither giving nor receiving assistance (written, oral, or otherwise) on tests, examinations, final evaluations or class assignments that are to be graded as the work of an individual. This means that students do their own work and do not copy work from other sources such as classmates, books, or online sources. Any suspicion or evidence of forging, cheating, or plagiarizing the work of others will be investigated. In compliance with DoDEA guidelines, any student who is in violation will receive no credit, an appropriate consequence for the particular assignment, and a letter will be sent home to be signed by the parents and returned to the teacher. A copy of the letter will be filed in the student’s discipline folder for the period of the school year.
