On-Campus Conduct

Computer Use and the Internet


The purpose of computer technology and the Internet is to support research and education in and among academic institutions in the United States by providing access to unique resources and the opportunity for collaborative work. Transmission of any material in violation of any U.S. or state regulation is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to: copyrighted material; plagiarism (the claiming of someone’s work as your own); use of profanity, obscenity, or other language which may be offensive to another user; threatening, pornographic, obscene or other material deemed inappropriate for minors; expressions of bigotry, racism or hate; or materials protected by trade secret. Use for commercial activities, product advertisement and/or political lobbying is also prohibited.

The use of computers and the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Inappropriate use will result in cancellation of those privileges and may result in other consequences as per the DOE Code of Conduct. An administrator may deny access at any time as required. The administration, faculty and staff of the school may request the system administrator to deny, revoke or suspend specific user access.

  • Be polite; do not get abusive in your messages to others.
  • Use appropriate language; do not swear, use vulgarities or suggestive language.

Academic Conduct

Grades earned in any course shall reflect the student’s daily achievement as well as the fulfillment of other academic requirements that may be established by the teacher.

  • Presenting another person’s ideas or theories in your own words without acknowledging the source

Internet plagiarism includes submitting downloaded term papers or parts of term papers, paraphrasing or copying information from the internet without citing the source and “cutting & pasting” from various sources without proper attribution.

Although conflict is a natural part of life, fighting does not have to be.
Law, Advocacy & Community Justice High School has a zero-tolerance for fighting.
To help prevent fights, we have a conflict mediation program that will work with students who are in conflict.
This program helps disputants to develop skills that will allow them to be heard, to listen, and to come to a resolution that is satisfactory to all parties involved.
