I am an educational leader at the state level, and I have been asked several times if OpenAI ChatGPT has site licensing. I have combed through the documentation, and I do not see any mention of this feature. In my state we have 13000 virtual school students. With virtual schooling, parents serve as the “learning coach” within the home and many parents struggle to help their kids academically. Generative AI is something that will really help our families. However, our virtual schools and school districts are hesitant to adopt widespread use of ChatGPT because they worry about student data privacy under FERPA and the inability to manage accounts for students.
There are several companies that leverage the OPENAI GPT API and repackage it for schools, but their platforms bottleneck the features and use. They also cost more than the OpenAI monthly subscription.
