The English Department is developing a new rotating schedule of electives, with the addition of some brand new courses. The new Course Selection Guide, coming out later this year in early winter, will reflect those changes.

FAQ's & Help for Power School

Please take a moment to read the Academic Honesty policy for our school, found in the Student/Parent Handbook.Of particular importance is the definition of plagiarism.

"Academic Honesty" (HEART-Honesty)

Students are expected to demonstrate academic honesty in all of their course work and educational programs when completing assignments. Plagiarism is defined as taking and using the ideas, images or writings of another person as one's own. Cheating is defined as copying work or collaborating with someone (without the instructor's permission). Therefore, plagiarism and cheating will not be allowed. Consequences for these acts are “0” for the assignment in question. Repeated offenses may result in failure for the quarter in that class, and additional disciplinary consequences."
