The following North Shore policies will be strictly enforced in my AP Biology class:

Academic Integrity: All work completed in, or submitted for, this course must adhere to conditions articulated in the North Shore High School Academic Integrity policy. Cheating, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty will be subject to the consequences articulated in the Academic Integrity policy, including but not limited to: loss of credit for the assignment, notification to National Honor Society, and disciplinary consequences including suspension. Repeat offenses will face an escalation in consequences as stipulated in the Academic Integrity policy.


Cell phones: Cell phones, iPods, and other personal, non-school issued electronic devices are not permitted in areas other than the cafeteria or courtyard. This is an academic environment and these devices must be turned off and out of sight in all hallways and classroom spaces including the theatre, library, and gymnasium. Devices may be confiscated and turned in to an Assistant Principal. For repeated offenses, the device may retained until it can be picked up by a parent.
