Plagiarizing, even by accident:


Rocky View Schools highlights the importance of not plagiarizing others’ work including assignments, tests, quizzes and exams. In the Responsible Use of Technology Agreement  Student that every student signs at the beginning of the year it says, “6.14 Network users will not engage in plagiarism of information obtained via “rockynet” network.”

Plagiarism is a serious offense; it will be brought to the attention of the Administration office at both your Home School and RVSO. Plagiarized work will result in a grade of “zero” for the assignment and may result in a grade of “zero” for the course, as well as academic suspension/expulsion.


Have a great semester!
