7.50 - Use of Artificial Intelligence

  • “Artificial intelligence” or “AI” is intelligence demonstrated by computers, as opposed to human intelligence. "Intelligence" encompasses the ability to learn, reason, generalize, and infer meaning.  Examples of AI technology include ChatGPT and other chatbots and large language models.

    AI is not a substitute for schoolwork that requires original thought.  Students may not claim AI generated content as their own work. The use of AI to take tests, complete assignments, create multimedia projects, write papers, or complete schoolwork without permission of a teacher or administrator is strictly prohibited.  The use of AI for these purposes constitutes cheating or plagiarism.

    In certain situations, AI may be used as a learning tool or a study aid.  Students who wish to use AI for legitimate educational purposes must have permission from a teacher or an administrator.  Students may use AI as authorized in their Individualized Education Program (IEP).

    Students may not use AI, including AI image or voice generator technology, to violate school rules or school district policies.

    In order to ensure academic integrity, tests, assignments, projects, papers, and other schoolwork may be checked by AI content detectors and/or plagiarism recognition software.
