Administrators and teachers will collaborate to determine how AI is used in classrooms, and teachers will play a critical role in monitoring the impact of AI tools on students and learning.
Administrators should share clear guidance for teacher roles and practices. A letter to staff can accompany guidance to help summarize and outline their specific roles and responsibilities. Issuing such guidance is most effective when coupled with professional development. This is an example for illustrative purposes and should be customized.
Dear Teachers and Staff,
Artificial intelligence (AI) can transform our schools in exciting ways, but we must also mitigate the risks. Below are a few examples of responsible and prohibited uses of AI. Throughout the rest of the school year, we will be providing ongoing PD opportunities.
Examples of Responsible Uses of AI
Responsible use of AI in the classroom may vary. For example, AI may only be appropriate for some graded assignments. I encourage you to discuss AI use with your students.
Examples of Prohibited Uses of AI
We will continue to ensure that data privacy and security are top priorities and will continue to approve software according to updated policies that include AI. Staff and students are prohibited from entering confidential or personally identifiable information into unauthorized AI tools, such as those without approved data privacy agreements. For more information, please read our complete guidance [insert link] on using AI in education, which includes a sample student agreement for AI in the classroom. We will also be providing ongoing PD opportunities throughout the school year.
