GENERAL SCHOOL REGULATIONS
The Elder Man should always be a gentleman. Each student is expected to always follow the accepted practice of good conduct in language and in action. Conduct towards others must always be respectful. Conduct not consistent with expectations for an Elder student will be appropriately disciplined. This includes events/activities sponsored by other Catholic high schools in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Students who feel they have a just complaint may represent their case either to the Principal or the Dean of Students/Disciplinarian. The Principal may amend the rules and regulations of Elder High School during the course of the school year when it is deemed appropriate and/or necessary.
Responsibility: It is the responsibility of every Elder student to respect the property and reputation of everyone at Elder. These rights must be protected even if this should mean reporting any injustices to someone in authority.
Code of Honor: The excellence, Altiora, which we strive for in the classroom, must be grounded in academic integrity. Cheating and other forms of academic dishonesty are contrary to the values that we teach and cannot be tolerated at any time. Cheating includes: On tests and quizzes:
Giving or receiving information during testing or quizzing situations either orally, visually, via an electronic device, or by any other means.
Bringing prepared materials to the testing situation, including notes on cheat sheets, hands, arms, clothing, electronic devices, or by any other means.
Revealing test information to other students outside of the testing areas.
On homework and assignments:
Copying someone's homework or assignment or having someone else prepare the assignment for the student.
Allowing another student to copy all or part of an assignment.
Plagiarism—copying printed material (paper, electronic, or others) and submitting it as if it were one's own without indicating the source of the information.
Students shall have a conference with the teacher, a grade of zero may be given on the test/quiz/assignment, and demerits may be issued. Additional offenses should be dealt with more harshly, with escalating penalties. In all cases of academic dishonesty, the parent(s) must be informed of the incident.
Harassment Policy: Our Judeo-Christian faith embraces each individual as a gift from God, worthy of love and respect. Therefore,
