School Response to Academic Dishonesty
When a student acts with academic dishonesty, several things may occur. Students that make a poor choice copying may receive a zero on the assignment. A record of the dishonesty will be put in the student's file. The student's teacher may phone home and discuss the issue with parents. The teacher may send the student down to the office to have a discussion with an Administrator and the Administrator may phone home and talk with parents. The Administration of the school may decide that a suspension is warranted if the acts of dishonesty are repeated several times.
