My son was part of the Ikar Tuesday Hebrew classes at Ikar in 5775. (He was Bar Mizvah 2 Adar 5775).

Looking over your classmate’s shoulder, writing notes on your hand, and keeping notes under your desk are outdated. The new way to cheat in Shalhevet is far more doable, and thus more dangerous to both students and teachers: Schoology cheating.
