New Jersey Virtual School™ Academic Integrity Statement
Academic integrity means:
Your work on each assignment will be your own.
Your collaboration with another classmate on any course work must be pre-approved by your instructor.
You will not practice plagiarism in any form.
You will not allow others to copy your work.
You will not misuse content from the Internet.
NJVS defines plagiarism as copying or using ideas or words (from another person, an online classmate, or an Internet or print source) and presenting them as your own.
Please be aware that all NJVS™ instructors utilize multiple technologies to check student work for authenticity. If an instructor confirms a student plagiarized in any manner, the student will be subject to consequences determined by NJVS™ administration, including removal from the course with a failing grade.
Students who take courses during the regular school year can receive accommodation with a short extension provided both the school district and New Jersey Virtual School™ approve of the extension period. Students should log in daily to keep up with their assignments. Courses are open 24/7 and students can work at any time, including weekends, to maintain academic progress.
For summer school students: As a policy, NJVS™ does not permit extensions for summer school students. However, it recognizes extenuating circumstances where a student may need a bit more time.
To request an extension, please submit a request to NJVS™ (at least five days before the end of the semester) by going to help.njvs.org. If approved, you must pay a $100 course extension fee before NJVS™ extends the course.
Please note: Extenuating circumstances do not include family vacation, camp or simply falling behind. Following a review of the request, NJVS™ will notify the student of approval or denial. An extension fee ($100 per course) will apply unless the extension is due to illness and the student provides a doctor's note to the NJVS™ office.
Technical support for the New Jersey Virtual School™ is provided via an online support ticketing system and live chat feature. For Technical Support, please visit the FAQs or Tech Support page.
Due to the volume of users, NJVS™ does not provide tech support via telephone.
Please note: Technical Support is available seven days a week through the ticketing system and online chat service. Each request is addressed in the order they are received. Please allow 24 hours for a response. We thank you for your cooperation.
Full payment mustbe made prior to the end of the registration period in order for enrollment to take place. Any payments made after the enrollment period will be refunded and the enrollment will be dropped.
