In an era defined by rapid technological advancements, artificial intelligence (AI) has emerged as a transformative force in education. However, the successful integration of AI into a school district’s strategy requires careful planning, preparation, and evaluation.
The Council of the Great City Schools (CGCS) and CoSN worked in partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop a K-12 Generative AI (Gen AI) Readiness Checklist Questionnaire—a list of questions that K-12 districts can use to build an understanding of the factors they should consider prior to implementing Gen AI technology solutions. This checklist is intended to be used as a tool to build a foundational understanding of the tactical considerations necessary to ensure that Gen AI is implemented safely and securely, without bias or algorithmic discrimination, with controls around data privacy, and with an understanding of the sources from which information is being generated.
