Grading Guidelines & Academic Dishonesty

Updated: Aug 18, 2022

Attached you will find the LVA & CCSD Grading Guidelines. This includes the grading scale, Late Work Submission Process, Summative Reassessment Process & Grade Reporting Procedures. This information is also found in the Student Handbook.


Students are required to demonstrate mastery and skills without relying on others. Unless informed by a teacher that an assignment is collaborative, students must complete their own work.

Academic Dishonesty includes, but is not limited to, cheating on tests, plagiarism, and collusion.

  • Cheating on a test includes copying from another student’s test paper or allowing another to copy answers from a test.

  • Using material during a test that is not authorized by the individual administering the test.

  • Collaborating with another student during a test without authorization.

  • Knowing, using, buying, selling, stealing, transporting, or soliciting in whole or in part the contents of an un-administered test.

  • Sharing work with other students

  • Substituting for another student or permitting another student to claim work as their own

  • To take a test or bribe another person to obtain a test that is to be administered.

Plagiarism – The use of another’s work and the unacknowledged incorporation of that work into one’s own written work for credit.

Collusion – The unauthorized collaboration with another person in preparing a written assignment
