Bonneville Laker Time Disclosure

What is Laker Time?

What is Laker Time?  All students at Bonneville High School participate in Laker Time advisory class which meets every Thursday between the 1st/5th or 2nd/6th period for about one hour.  The purpose of Laker Time is to guide all students toward academic and personal success.
 The establishment of Laker Time was driven by research suggesting that advisory programs are vital to the academic and personal success of high school students.  Laker Time involves teacher advocates who regularly monitor student academic progress.
 Laker advisors will require students to complete regular self-reviews of academic progress.  Positive feedback is given for satisfactory grades, while encouragement and suggestions for improvement are given for unsatisfactory performance.  The students will use this time for making up work or tests they have missed, receiving tutoring assistance, or enrichment in advanced classes, etc. 
Students may receive up to .25 academic elective credit for the year by meeting the expectations of attendance and participation.  Students will receive a Pass (P) or a No Mark (NM) depending on your use of the Laker Time period.  This will not affect your GPA.  Attendance will be taken and if more than 2 unexcused absences occur each quarter, attendance credit will be lost for that quarter.
A passing grade in Laker Time can be attained through:
•Good attendance (truancies and tardies are considered)
•Cooperation (proper classroom behavior)
•Proper use of the Laker Time period
•Improvement is shown

All school rules apply to Laker Time, as in all other classes.
•Cell phones, ipods or head phones are not allowed
•Attendance is critical to the success of your student
•The individual guidelines of each teacher must be followed

Plagiarism/Cheating Policy Bonneville High School

We value academic integrity and do not permit any form of dishonesty, plagiarism or deception that unfairly, improperly or illegally enhances the grade of an individual, a group assignment or a final grade. Many people think of plagiarism as copying another’s work or borrowing someone else’s original ideas. Terms like “copying”, “sharing” or “borrowing” can disguise the seriousness of the offense. You also need to be careful to distinguish between collaborative assignments assigned by a teacher, such as lab groups.

All of the following are considered plagiarism:
•Turning in someone else’s work as your own
•Copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
•Failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
•Giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
•Changing words, but copying the sentence structure of a source without
•giving credit
•Copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of
•your work whether you give credit or not
•To cut and paste work that is not your own and handing it is in plagiarism

According to U.S. law, the expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property, and is protected by copyright laws, just like original inventions.

I have read and understand BOTH the Laker Time Disclosure and the Plagiarism policy and agree to abide by the provisions. I understand that violation of the plagiarism policy may result in appropriate disciplinary actions.
