Student cheating will not be tolerated at WCCA. Cheating is a serious offense and will be treated as such. Cheating is defined as any attempt to deceive.
Cheating includes plagiarism. Plagiarism is defined as stealing and passing off the ideas or words of another as one’s own. Plagiarism includes using the words or ideas of another person without crediting the source. Plagiarism includes stealing words or ideas from any published or unpublished (i.e. internet) source. It can also include passing off the words or ideas of another student as your own.
For the first offense of plagiarism, the student’s parents will be notified and the student will receive a zero for the plagiarized work. Any subsequent offense will result in suspension.
