LMACS students will not plagiarize. Plagiarism is using someone else’s work or ideas without permission and treating them like they are your ideas. The most common types of plagiarism are:

Context Change: To camouflage copying by changing the context of the original paper.

Missing Footnotes: To skip footnotes altogether.

False References: To cite nonexistent books or journal articles, or referring to sources unrelated to the subject matter.

Any student caught plagiarizing will be subject to a staff intervention on the first offense. On repeated offenses the student will be subject to a meeting with Parent/DA and LMACS administrators.
