Changes Made to Student Handbook

posted Sep 19, 2017, 1:50 PM by website team

Through a collaborative effort between STUCO, JH/HS teachers and administration, the cell phone policy in the JH/HS yearbook has been updated to the following:    

Students are encouraged not to bring valuables or money to school.  The use of cell phones and other recording devices is prohibited in all rest room and locker room areas on USD #386 property.  The use of these devices is also banned from any restroom or dressing room areas housing USD #386 students on trips off campus.  A violation of this policy will be treated as a major violation.  Law enforcement may be contacted for investigation of possible invasion of privacy or pornography.  Cell phones are not allowed to be used during school hours (7:30 a.m.-3:25 p.m.) with the following exceptions:

q  Students can use phones in the cafeteria prior to the 8:10 am bell.

q  Students can use phones in the cafeteria during their lunch period.

Phones should be turned off and silenced when secured in your locker or in your possession. A student making or receiving calls or text messages in an unauthorized area or unauthorized time will face disciplinary action as follows: 


q  1st violation:  1 hr detention

q  2nd violation:  2hr detention

q  3rd violation:  1 day of ISS

 

Additionally, teachers have collaborated in an effort to further define and develop a school wide plagiarism policy.  The italicized language is what is currently in the handbook and the shaded text is the new portion of the policy.  The new language does not  replace the language currently in the handbook, but is an addition and more clearly defines consequences from the classroom teacher.        

Plagiarism and cheating in the classroom are viewed as unacceptable at Madison Junior/Senior High School.  Individual policies and consequences for cheating or taking credit for another's ideas or work will be made clear by each teacher.  Punishment could include, but is not limited to, loss of credit for the assignment, loss of credit for that class, and/or disciplinary measures such as detention or even suspension.  Repeated incidents of plagiarism or cheating could result in more severe action being taken.  Any incident of plagiarism or cheating will be dealt with at the discretion of the classroom teacher and may or may not involve the administration.

 

Plagiarism is defined as the practice of taking someone else’s words, work, or ideas and passing them off as your own.  To combat plagiarism in the classroom, Madison Junior/Senior High School has implemented use of a plagiarism checking website and a school-wide plagiarism policy. Instances of Plagiarism will be tracked through a mutual google doc.

q  1st Offense: Warning. Call home and speak with parents and assignment will be redone.

q  2nd Offense: Call home and student must redo assignment at maximum 70% credit

q  3rd Offense: The assignment grade is and will remain a 0. This is the penalty for all further offenses.
