Series 5000 - Students

1.  Elementary and Secondary

B. Progress/Records

(4) Cheating

The Suffield Board of Education believes that personal integrity is basic to all solid achievement. 

Cheating by students is defined as attempting to take credit or taking credit for someone else’s work, using unauthorized materials, or otherwise acting to deceive the evaluator in an assignment, project, or test.

The Board expects students not to cheat, lie or plagiarize. The Superintendent, in conjunction with administrators and faculty, shall develop steps to be taken to determine if cheating has occurred and punishments meted out when students cheat.

When an incident of cheating occurs, parents/guardians shall be contacted.

Teachers at all grade levels shall make students aware of what cheating is, how it undermines the learning process and breaches principles of ethics that the district places in high regard, and the punishment for it.   They shall also structure tests and assignments so as to minimize the opportunity for student cheating.
