Academic Honesty

The San Benito County Office of Education (SBCOE) believes that academic honesty and personal integrity are fundamental components of a student’s education and character development. The SBCOE expects that students will not cheat, lie, plagiarize or commit other acts of academic dishonesty.

Students, parents/guardians, staff and administrators shall be responsible for creating and maintaining a positive school climate that encourages honesty. Students found to have committed an act of academic dishonesty shall be subject to SBCOE school-site discipline rules.
