    -          Quizzes can be retaken one time, regardless of a student’s homework score.

    CHEATING:  The students of El Diamante High School are expected to demonstrate the belief that personal integrity is basic to all solid achievement and that it is the responsibility of the school to maintain a climate in which honesty is expected and valued. Cheating is an obstacle to achieving this goal. With regard to schoolwork, cheating is defined as obtaining or providing any help on an assignment or test where the intent was that the student completes the assignment or test by himself/herself.

     

    CELL PHONE POLICY: Cell phones should be put away and turned off during class time unless told differently by Mr. Riddle.
