Philosophy

  • At Sumner High School we believe that academic honesty is integral to the educational process and strive to ensure that students have a clear understanding of both expectations and practices of academic honesty and the consequences of academic dishonesty/malpractice.
     
    This Academic Integrity Policy was developed in 2012 as a means of implementing a school-wide policy. This policy was based upon the IB Honor Code implemented in 2008. This policy was developed by a representative group of teachers with input from the entire teaching staff. The Instructional Council, which is comprised of Building Instructional Team Leaders, The Administrative Team including, the Head of School (the Principal), reviewed and implemented the Academic Integrity Policy, retaining responsibility for evaluating and reviewing the SHS Academic Integrity Policy and practices on a regular basis and for updating this document to reflect current practice at SHS.
