The rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology present both incredible opportunities and significant challenges for educational settings. Whether or not a school district is considering leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI), the influence of this technology on educational ecosystems is undeniable. As AI increasingly becomes a part of our daily lives, district leaders have a responsibility to understand its impact in educational settings and make informed decisions accordingly. This is true whether the aim is active adoption or simply preparation for a future where AI tools become more prevalent in educational settings.

Dr. Tom Ryan, Dr. Richard Charles, and Don Wolf discussed the benefits and potential risks of AI in school districts, emphasizing the importance of a toolkit developed by CoSN and the Council for the Great City Schools to navigate AI-related conversations and the need for a diverse team to review AI-generated content.
