Do you cheat or know people who do? The Charger Staff needs your help with determining whether or not there has been an increase in academic cheating. By clicking this link, you’ll help by taking a survey which will ask you questions relating to cheating. The results will not be shared with anyone and will be used to determine if there has indeed been a change or if there has not.

Attention Students: Charger needs your feedback from anyone who has taken an online course, even in middle school. Please use the link for the survey, which should only take a few minutes. Thank you for your time!
