Academic Integrity

Plagiarism (copying another person's work or ideas and portraying as your own original work) is considered cheating. This action may result in a grade of zero for the assignment. Repeated plagiarism offenses may result in removal from the course.

IVS utilizes a plagiarism checker that ensures original work by checking submitted papers against 24+ billion web pages, 300+ million student papers and leading library databases and publications.

Teachers will provide written documentation of the plagiarism and will use the following procedure:

  • Discussion with the student
  • Notification to School, Parent/Guardian, and IVS Director
