Did you know? The word plagiarism comes from the
Latin plagiarius meaning "kidnapper."

                                              Academic Integrity

              Here is a sample text:
              “To Kill a Mockingbird is renowned for its warmth and
              humor, despite dealing with the serious issue of racial
              inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as
              a moral hero for many readers and as a model of integrity
              for lawyers.”

           This is NOT putting it in your own words.
           To Kill a Mockingbird is renowned for its tenderness and
           humor, even though it deals with the serious issue of racial
           inequality. The narrator's father, Atticus Finch, has served as
           a ethical hero for many readers and as a model of integrity
           for lawyers.”.

Here is a sample text:
“To Kill a Mockingbird is renowned for its warmth and humor, despite
dealing with the serious issue of racial inequality. The narrator's father,
Atticus Finch, has served as a moral hero for many readers and as a model
of integrity for lawyers

This is much better!
“The novel I selected for this reading assignment is To Kill a Mockingbird.
This novel is famous because it was written in a time when segregation was
a big issue in America. The narrator’s father, Atticus Finch, has high moral
values which has made him famous with readers over the years. The novel
has humor and a good ethical lesson that everyone can learn from.”

                                            Academic Integrity

Academic integrity or CHEATING is taken VERY seriously at LVS. There
are specific consequences for students who violate our Academic
Integrity Policy. Please think very carefully before letting others use
your work or before using other’s work. The consequences are not
worth it, you are only hurting yourself!

A meeting with the student, teacher and a parent
A zero earned on the assignment or all assignments involved
Student can be removed from the course
The student can lose eligibility to participate in LVS & FLVS

In college, if a student chooses to break the school’s academic integrity
policy, the student is removed from the school and the tuition is not
returned to the student or his or her parent.
