Students have access to many types of information on the Internet and it is important to be aware that there are consequences for plagiarism. Students are engaging in plagiarism whenever they download or copy resources verbatim and include it in their own work without acknowledging the source of that information. In doing this, students give the impression that this work is their own.
Plagiarism is unethical. It can create an unfair advantage over students who are doing legitimate work, and it denies students the opportunity for learning; which is the intent of teacher-designed projects. Suspected plagiarism will be dealt with by classroom teachers and the school administration and could result in a range of consequences that may even include a new assignment or suspension.
