• Rolesville High School Academic Honor Code

    In many organizations, honor is an empty word. This is not the case at Rolesville High School. As members of the Rolesville High School community, we commit ourselves to act honestly, responsibly, and above all, with honor and integrity in all areas of campus life. We are accountable for all that we say, do and write. We are responsible for the academic integrity of our work. As members of this community, we stand firmly against any dishonest act that includes, but is not necessarily limited to the following:

    • Wrongfully using or taking the ideas or work of another.
    • Giving or receiving unauthorized aid from another person or technology device on assignments, papers, quizzes, tests or examinations (sharing information, even copying answers to worksheets is considered cheating and therefore unacceptable).
    • Plagiarizing.
    • Getting advance information about quizzes, tests, or examinations. 
    • Using or consulting unauthorized materials or using unauthorized devices on papers, quizzes, tests or examinations. 
    • Using any portion of a paper or project to fulfill the requirements of more than once course, unless the student has received prior permission to do so. 
    • Intentionally misrepresenting the need for extra time on any assignments, papers, quizzes, tests or examinations, in order to gain more information. 
    • Choosing to be absent on the due date of a paper, project, quiz or test unless it is excused. 
    • Lying about any of the above. (Adopted from East Chapel Hill High School)
