From the Winchester Thurston Upper School Handbook:
A student demonstrates academic integrity when the work they submit is their own, and they have neither given nor received unauthorized aid on an assignment. In a healthy intellectual community, learners acknowledge and respect their influences by explicitly acknowledging the ideas, words, images, information, and assistance of others.
For information on the forms that academic dishonesty can take, view the handbook here.
"The act of taking another person’s ideas, writings, or opinions and presenting them as one’s own without proper acknowledgment; the act of borrowing a sequence of ideas, the arrangement of material, or a pattern of thought of someone else without proper acknowledgment."
From the WT Upper School Student Handbook
"A restatement of a text, passage, or work giving the meaning in another form. The teacher asked the students to write a paraphrase of the poem."
