Academic Integrity

From the BHS Student Handbook:

Academic Honesty: Academic honesty is a fundamental principle for all educational institutions. Academic honesty in the advancement of knowledge requires that all students and instructors respect the integrity of one another’s work and recognize the importance of acknowledging and safeguarding intellectual property. Academic honesty means that you assume responsibility for your own work at all times and for your individual contribution to group work as assigned by your teacher. Academic dishonesty is a serious violation of trust.

The work you hand in represents you to your teachers and classmates, it is the result of your thought, time and effort. You have the satisfaction of knowing that you have earned the credit you receive. It is important for you to act in an ethically responsible manner. You should have pride in your own work.
