Marcus Cole: "It's our job to protect the students of this school."
Alex Standall: "To protect the student at this school?"
Marcus: "Yes, Alex, that's what the Honor Board is for, to settle disputes among students so they don't spill out into the hallways"
Alex: "Yeah the Honor Board. 'Cause you're all so honorable."
―  Alex questioning the integrity of the Honor Board members[src]

The Honor Board is an honor board at Liberty High School. The Honor Board has authority to conduct a formal hearing in minor cases of violations of the Honor Code and academic integrity policies, such as cheating, violence, and minor theft. The administrative advisor to the Honor Board is currently vice principal Jane Childs. Advisors have a voice to step in if things get out of hand but they have no vote.


It is currently unknown who the current members (including president and secretary) are. They would have taken the former members places. It is also unknown if another advisor took Kevin Porters place or if Jane Childs is the sole advisor.

According to former Advisor, Kevin Porter, the former members were smart, good kids and their decisions were not considered a responsibility of the school's directing board. According to former member and president, Marcus Cole, their role is to "settle disputes among students so that they do not spill out into the hallways".


In "Tape 3, Side B", the Honor Board was granted the power to arbitrate a conflict between Alex Standall and Montgomery de la Cruz. An emergency meeting was called to resolve the case. Six acting members, which was a full quorum (as stated by Marcus) were present: Marcus Cole, acting as president and Courtney Crimsen as recording secretary, and other members Sheri HollandClay Jensen and 2 unnamed students. Advisors Jane Childs and (former) advisor Kevin Porter were also present to step in if they needed to, they voiced various concerns and warnings. The decision of three days of suspension by the Board was enforced by the School.[1]

Marcus Cole, Courtney Crimsen, Sheri Holland and Clay Jensen left the Honor Board after graduating Liberty High.[2] Jane Childs is assumed to remain as Advisor, however Kevin Porter was fired from his job at the school due to testifying against the school during the trial when he was expected to help the school win. It is assumed that new students have taken the former members places and a new advisor has taken Porter's place but it is not known who did.
