Academic integrity is an important part of Marrero Middle School’s mission to provide a safe environment for a diverse learning community, which values academic excellence, individual responsibility and life-long learning. Students are responsible for learning and upholding ethical and honest standards of research, writing, and assessment in all academic areas. Written or other work which students submit must be the product of their own efforts. Academic dishonesty, which includes cheating, plagiarism and other forms of dishonest or unethical behavior, is prohibited.
School computers are available in classes, the library, and the computer technology class lab for student use. Students are only allowed to use computers for internet research. Students are never to employ communication software such as Facebook, My Space, Twitter, Instagram, E-mail, or other software from the school computers.
School computers are for educational use. Students are not to download music, pictures, or videos, unless this is part of a class assignment. Failure to comply with this rule will result in banning from computers at school, which can adversely affect class grades.
