IB STUDENT AND PARENT AGREEMENT FORM
INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM HONOR CODE
and the IB GENERAL REGULATIONS: DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
(required from all certificate and diploma students: due to Ms. Colnar by September 12)
THE INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE PROGRAM HONOR CODE
HONESTY and INTEGRITY form the cornerstone of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Honor Code at Granite Bay
High School, and as such are central to the high standards by which all students should live. The IB Honor
Code begins with the belief that every student has the right to pursue an education free from the ills caused by
any form of intellectual dishonesty. This is discussed as “Malpractice” in Article VII-E of the General Regula-
tions: Diploma Programme document.
I understand that the IB course of study is challenging, and while group study is both accepted and encouraged,
ethical conduct is expected at all times. Academic violation of the Honor Code consists of the following:
PLAGIARISM includes the copying of or representation of another’s work as one’s own.
COLLUSION includes the actual giving or receiving of any unauthorized aid or assistance on any
form of any academic work.
Inherent in this Honor Code is the responsibility of an individual to come forth and report any form of violation in
the Honor Code. Violations of the Honor Code will be handled in accordance with written teacher policy and
considered a disciplinary matter to be generally handled as follows:
1st offense: Parent conference and written reprimand
2nd offense: Recommendation for dismissal from the IB Program
IB GENERAL REGULATIONS: DIPLOMA PROGRAMME
I have read and understood the most recent copy of this IB document (and any amendments) that describe the
regulations that apply to schools that have been authorized as IB World Schools to offer the Diploma Pro-
gramme. Granite Bay High School is such a school. If I have questions about any of these regulations, I will
promptly contact the IB Coordinator, Sharry Colnar, at email@example.com.
