|Santa Ana Unified establishes AI Policy Lab
Santa Ana Unified and EdSAFE AI Alliance have announced the establishment of an AI Policy Lab. The lab aims to promote the safe and ethical use of artificial intelligence (AI) in educational settings. It will provide policy recommendations and educational resources for teachers, students, and parents, with a focus on community engagement. The collaboration between SAUSD and EdSAFE AI Alliance is part of a nationwide network of similar policy initiatives, working towards responsible AI development, deployment, and usage. Jerry Almendarez, Superintendent of SAUSD, expressed excitement about the partnership and emphasized the commitment to safety, equity, ethics, effectiveness, and transparency in integrating AI into the school district. The EdSAFE AI Alliance, consisting of 12 districts across the country, focuses on creating a comprehensive "policy stack" for AI integration in education. This collaborative effort aims to leverage AI effectively and align it with the needs of each district.
