Research/Term papers must reflect the student’s own work citing sources and references where necessary. Any work submitted by the student that is found not to be his/her own shall be given an “F” grade. Further disciplinary action may be taken by Bassett High School Staff and Administration.

Homework is generally given at least four times a week in all classes. Appropriate homework assignments for all students are based on an average of thirty minutes per class hour.
