The handbook has been updated with the following information in regards to the use of artificial intellingence:

“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
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.
