Students in a JSerra Catholic High School literature class had to re-take their final exam when administrators learned that a student had obtained a copy of the test before taking it the first time and shared it with others, the Orange County Register reported.
About 170 students in the private school's Shakespeare's World senior elective class had to retake the final Friday, according to the Register.
The test was first administered last week, the Register reports. But then a student, who was not enrolled in that class, approached administrators about the circulating test.
School officials are still trying to determine the consequences for guilty party. The Register reports:
"We have a zero tolerance toward cheating," [Principal John] Freeh said. "Given our core values, we take integrity very seriously, more seriously than college acceptance and GPAs."
Freeh said the private Catholic high school's six-member discipline review committee would convene next week to discuss the issue, and might move toward suspension or expulsion of the student. Freeh declined to identify the student.
