Friendswood ISD is seeking teacher input on artificial intelligence in the classroom and is running a survey to find out more about how the topic might be approached, Superintendent Thad Roher said in his monthly staff letter.

The gist

With AI finding more of a role in both the world and the classroom, FISD officials are wanting to understand more about how to use it to benefit teachers and students, Roher said in his letter.

The goal of the survey is to provide professional development opportunities and to tailor AI to the needs and preferences of individual teachers, Roher said.

The survey opened on Oct. 30 and will run through Nov. 17, Kelsey Golz, communication specialist with the district, said in an email.
