Cherry Hill High School East Honor Code
An essential feature of Cherry Hill High School East is its commitment to integrity and ethical conduct build on trust and personal respect. Cherry Hill East's honor system helps to nurture an academic community in which a code of values is shared. Instilling a sense of honor and high principles that extend to all facets of life is a crucial aspect of a liberal education.
All students and staff members must uphold the highest standards of academic integrity. The Honor Code depends for its effectiveness primarily on the individual and collective desire of all members of the community to prevent and deter violations rather than on proceedings to impose penalties after infractions have occurred.
All forms of scholastic dishonesty are prohibited, whether related to a test or quiz, essay, term paper, lab report, mode of creative expression, cooperative learning, homework, computer-based work, or other academic undertakings. Scholastic dishonestly includes cheating, plagiarism, collusion, and the falsification or the misrepresentation of data.
Consequences of Honor Code Infractions
Students are expected to show both within and without Cherry Hill East such respect for order, morality, personal honor, and the rights of others as is demanded of good citizens. Failure to do this will be sufficient cause for a grade of zero on the test/assignment and parental notification of the violation. Subsequent violations, in addition to disciplinary consequences, could result in notification of the student's guidance counselor and the Coordinator of Student Activities and in becoming ineligible to participate in or run for class officer, SGA representative or officer, leadership conferences, Governor's School, the Senior Hall of Fame, and other extracurricular activities.
On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this (exam, test, paper, etc.).
