Academic Integrity

North High School expects all students to abide by ethical academic standards. Academic dishonesty—including plagiarism, cheating or copying the work of another, using technology for illicit purposes, or any unauthorized communication between students for the purpose of gaining advantage during an examination—is strictly prohibited. North’s Academic Integrity Policy covers all school-related tests, quizzes, reports, class assignments, and projects, both in and out of class. The purpose of North’s Academic Integrity Policy is to ensure students understand that the theft of another’s words, ideas, or intellectual property has real-world consequences, and to ensure students are held accountable for authentic production of academic work and intellectual integrity.
