Avalon's Middle/High School Academic Honesty Policy
The reason teachers collect and grade individual class work, homework, and projects is so that they can determine your individual proficiency in mastering the academic material. More important than your final grade is the ability for teachers to adjust their teaching plan to meet your needs as indicated by the individual work you turn in. It is vital, therefore, that all the work you present to a teacher be completely your own. Academic dishonesty is submitting as your own any kind of work that you did not produce in its entirety. When a student assists others in academic dishonesty they are equally guilty of violating the honesty policy. It is only when every student honestly does their own work, that assignments have any true meaning in determining a student's abilities. Examples of Academic Dishonesty include: Copying homework from another student. Receiving/Giving answers to test taken earlier Copying or plagiarizing from the Internet, written text or other source without quoting as a source or paraphrasing. Copying or sharing answers between students on a quiz or test Crediting source material that was not used for research Allowing another student to copy from you Plagiarize from the Internet, written text or other source Sharing work via electronic devices (cell phones, Email, Facebook, etc.) The Consequences: On First Offense: Failing grade on the assignment, test, quiz, essay Letter to parent notifying of offense and consequences On Second Offense: Possible failure of class Unsatisfactory conduct grade on next Report Card Denial of counselor recommendation for college or scholarships Administrative referral, possible suspension Teacher Responsibility: It cannot be considered a second offense unless a parent is personally contacted by the teacher or other school personnel on the first offense and both the student and parent are notified of the offense and consequences for future offenses. Teacher should contact administrator and/or counselor to record offense on the discipline record and to have the policy and consequences reinforced with the student and family. I have read the academic honesty policy and understand that I will be held accountable if found violating this policy throughout my Middle School or High School Career

How to Understand/Interpret Your Child's Test Scores
Parents are vital to the success of their students. Parents can use the scaled scores and achievement levels of their students report card to identify areas where they can help their student be more successful. Because parents and teachers can both access a student’s score, parents can work together with their students’ teachers to discover ways to support their students’ learning going forward. Parents can also celebrate the areas of growth they see in their students, as revealed by their students’ scores on the Smarter Balanced tests.
While an important part of measuring a student’s progress, it’s also important to remember that the results of a Smarter Balanced test are just one piece of evidence of a student’s progress and should be combined with other measures. Students shouldn’t get discouraged if their Achievement Level is low, and parents and teachers should remember that the results are the beginning point of discussion for how to best support a student’s learning.
