ACADEMIC INTEGRITY


ACADEMIC INTEGRITY


JLBC Junior Leadership Bootcamp seeks to educate cadets in both character and mind and therefore expects its cadets to demonstrate integrity in all academic endeavors. JLBC defines academic integrity as each cadet doing their work, except when the teacher permits groups of cadets to work together to produce one product. Suppose a cadet uses the phrases, sentences, structures, or ideas in an individual assignment, such as a research paper. In that case, the cadets must give due credit to their sources. When teachers require personal work to be submitted but allow collaboration in completing that work, cadets may discuss ideas and concepts. Still, the actual work turned in must be the individual cadets. There is no distinction between receiving and giving unauthorized help; a cadet who helps another cadet cheat is as guilty as a cadet who benefits from the cheating. All work submitted by cadets should be a true reflection of their effort and ability.

Examples of unacceptable practices which constitute academic dishonesty include, but are not limited to:

• Copying another cadet's work with or without that cadet's knowledge;

• Using another's words or ideas without giving due credit (plagiarism);

• Violating testing procedures as defined by a teacher in an individual classroom;

• Giving and receiving answers to a test or quiz;

• Unauthorized distribution, copying, or recording of tests or quizzes

Instances of cadet cheating will be investigated by the teachers, counselors, administration, deans of cadets and will incur the following consequences:

1st Infraction:

The cadets will receive a zero on the assignment.

The teacher will contact the parent/guardian by phone.

The referral will be sent to an administrator for recording and filing.

2nd Infraction (in the same or any other class):

The cadets will receive a zero on the assignment.

The cadets may receive an "unsatisfactory" citizenship mark for the grading period.

Cadets' letter grades may drop one or more letter grades for the quarter.

The teacher will contact the parent/guardian by phone.

The referral will be sent to an administrator for recording and filing.

3rd Infraction (in the same or any other class):

The cadets will receive a zero on the assignment.

The cadets will receive an "unsatisfactory" citizenship mark for the semester.

Cadets may be dropped and fail from the class where the third Infraction occurred.

The cadets will be removed from a school leadership position.

The referral will be sent to an administrator for recording and filing.

The administrator will contact the parent/guardian by phone.

The cadets will be penalized for the second and third infractions if the incidents have taken place in the same academic year as the first Infraction.

The cadets will be held accountable for second and third violations in the same or any other class where the first violation took place.
