Goochland School Board developing honor code

An honor code or honor system is a set of rules or ethical principles governing a community based on ideals that define what constitutes honorablebehavior within that community. The use of an honor code depends on the notion that people (at least within the community) can be trusted to act honorably. Those who are in violation of the honor code can be subject to various sanctions, including expulsion from the institution. Honor codes are most commonly used in the United States to deter academic dishonesty. (Wikipedia. July 19, 2013)
