    ANY instance of academic dishonesty (regardless of the assignment) will be noted in the student’s discipline record, sent to the AP for further disciplinary action and the assignment will be a zero until the student makes an appointment with the teacher to redo the work in front of the teacher WITHOUT the use of technology. The “second chance” opportunity will only be granted once during the whole school year. Furthermore, students may be asked to "defend" their assignment with the IB Viva Voce questions in an interview with the teacher.
