CCISD STUDENTS DEVELOP HONOR CODE
League City, TX – The Superintendent’s High School Student Advisory Council recently developed an Honor Code. The students believe their Academic Integrity is being challenged in the face of high stakes testing and reports of periodic cheating. The Advisory Council is made up of students from every high school in Clear Creek ISD.
“The students who created this new honor code demonstrated a great deal of courage to take a moral stand on an issue that has generated plenty of publicity, said Superintendent Greg Smith, Ph. D., “All intermediate and high school students will be asked to sign the Honor Code at the start of each school year.”
The group created consequences they believe will serve as a deterrent to a violation of the Honor Code for intermediate and high school students in CCISD including:
- A student shall receive a “0” for the school work, and is subject to a “U” in conduct and disciplinary action (including ineligibility in the next contest/game).
- There will be no retakes for students who cheat.
- Students who are enrolled in advanced academic courses (Pre-AP/AP) will be immediately removed from the advanced academic course and placed in the next lower level class.
- A student is not eligible for any final exam exemption.
- A documented finding of academic dishonesty shall be reported on the student’s college application.
