Behavior and Consequences
Students are responsible for their own behavior and are expected to follow all campus rules and regulations. These behavior expectations apply at any time students are on campus and at all school activities. The Education Code also gives the school jurisdiction over student conduct on the way to school, or at school activities, at break and lunch whether on or off campus, and on the way home from school.

Academic Honesty Policy
Fullerton Joint Union High School District students are expected to attend school ready to learn. It is also expected that student behavior will reflect good sense and an ability to discern right from wrong. The well-being of the school community depends on the student accepting responsibility for personal conduct in both social and academic endeavors.
Academic honesty depends on the student taking responsibility for producing work that is reflective of the student’s best effort. Academic dishonesty is evidenced by cheating or plagiarizing and involves an attempt by a student to show possession of knowledge and skills he/she does not possess. Academic dishonesty may result in a zero grade for work completed, loss of credit, a failing grade for the course, or other appropriate consequences as determined by a school administrator.
Student, Parent/Guardian, and Teacher Responsibilities: Students are expected to adhere to the principles of this policy in completing all school-related tests, quizzes, reports, homework, assignments, and other academic work both in class and out of class. Parents/guardians are expected to support the spirit and intent of this policy by reviewing the policy with their students and encouraging the students to practice academic honesty. Teachers are expected to promote the academic honesty policy through ongoing reference to and application of the District Moral and Civic Values, to make clear to students the fact that the principles of the policy will be strictly enforced, and to act on and enforce appropriate consequences when a student is found to have violated the academic honesty policy. Students found to have been involved in any act of academic dishonesty may be subject to a failing grade on related assignments, removal from the class with no credit, removal from academic honor organizations, transfer to another school, suspension, expulsion, and other appropriate consequences.
