Code of Conduct

  • As part of the Nassau BOCES Virtual School, we expect students to follow the highest standards of honesty and integrity.

    Below is a list of acts of dishonesty. Be sure to read these carefully and be sure to never do them. The consequences for committing any of the following acts will result in loss of grade points, removal from the course, an “F” grade in the course, or some other disciplinary action by your school.


    1. Plagiarism is the act of representing another’s ideas, words, expressions, or data in writing or presentation without properly acknowledging the source.

    2. Submitting work through the use of another person's password/login is considered dishonest behavior. Any assignments, work, or projects posted while using another student's login will be considered plagiarism.

    3. Cheating (intentionally using or attempting to use unauthorized material, assistance, or study aids in any academic work). Cheating involves when a student copies another student’s work and then submits it as his or her own work.

    4. Performing work or taking an examination for another student OR having another person perform work or take an examination.

    5. Falsification and/or misrepresentation of data by submitting false data or sources.

    6. Computer crimes include damaging computer programs, hacking, constructing viruses, introducing viruses into a system, or copying programs.
