Late and Missing Assignments:  It is important for students to develop good personal management skills (such as time management and planning).  These skills will be reflected in the learning skills area of the report card. It is expected that students will complete and submit all essential tasks as they are the opportunity for you to demonstrate your learning to your teacher.


Attendance: Attendance in classes is an important part of learning, and absences should be avoided.  When a student is absent, a parent/guardian must call the school’s attendance line on the date of absence, or provide a note explaining the absence for the student to submit the following day.  Students are responsible for what they missed during their absence.


Cheating and Plagiarism: It is important for students to do their own best work.  Most assignments for this class are done within the classroom, observed by the teacher, and this helps to minimize the chances of cheating and plagiarism.  In the event that cheating or plagiarism occurs, the following consequences may be implemented, in consultation with administration, depending on the situation:

  1. The student may be required to redo all or part of the assignment or assessment.
  2. The student may be required to complete an alternate assignment or assessment.
  3. The student’s work may be treated as a missed assignment.

There may also be other consequences that are determined to be appropriate (e.g. detention, suspension, etc.) as per the school’s progressive discipline process.  Parents/guardians will be informed about the infraction and the consequences.


Please refer to the school website: for more details on these policies and other academic procedures.
