The teacher may assign productive, supportive and meaningful consequences, such as:

      • conducting a problem-solving conference with you;
      • referring you to the Student Success Teacher or Team;

      • deducting marks;
      • determining that you’ve lost the opportunity to complete the assignment.

Breaches of academic honesty may include, but are not limited to the following: plagiarism, copying, improper citation, misrepresenting effort, collaborating inappropriately, sabotaging the work of others, damaging or stealing source material, and misuse of communication technologies.
