“On my honor, I have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on this assignment.”
The purpose of the Honor Council is for a panel of students to help educate River Hill students who have violated the academic integrity code at River Hill High School. Students who are chosen to be on the Honor Council meet during Hawktime as cases arise through out the year. Depending on the circumstances, students who violate the academic integrity code can have their cases heard before the Honor Council, rather than an Administrator. This allows the student to have their side of the story heard by a panel of their peers. The Honor Council will listen, ask questions, and recommend an “educational tool” to help these students reflect on different ways to handle the situation in the future. The Honor Council is responsible for three main objectives:
Those who commit a Level I violation may appear before the student Honor Council. (See the 2 levels under Adacemic Policy below).
Honor Council is a great way to get involved in your school. Please see the application below for more details. Each student selected for Honor Council serves for one year.
