Integrity: A Statement of Academic Honesty

Honesty is at the heart of Lincoln's mission as an academic community and Quaker school. Dishonesty undermines both the community and the students' own learning. Therefore all students are expected to maintain the highest standards of academic honesty.

Presenting work that is not your own is plagiarism.  Giving your work to another student is cheating.

In every piece of academic work, from homework assignments to exams, students are expected to acknowledge their sources. Students are expected to consult The Modern Language Association Handbook for clarification, and should always consult with a teacher when they have questions.


Procedure and Consequences

If a faculty member believes that a student has plagiarized or cheated, the faculty member will speak with the Upper School Director and the Dean of Students, who will discuss the issue with the faculty member, the appropriate department head, and the student and her advisor.  The family will be contacted by the school. If it is determined that a student presented work that was not her own, there will be a disciplinary response, that may include an appearance before the Honor Council. The student will receive a zero for that work and the incident will be recorded on her record. A second incident of academic dishonesty may result in suspension or dismissal.
