The Jordan School District – one of the largest districts in Utah – is partnering with SchoolAI to bring generative AI technologies into classrooms for personalized one-on-one tutoring, guidance, and support.

The school district, which serves 67 schools, 3,350 educators, and more than 57,800 students, will integrate AI into classrooms district-wide through SchoolAI’s platform. The district said in a press release that its teachers can take advantage of AI-powered lesson plans and offer a safe technology experience tailored to each student’s individual needs.

The SchoolAI platform includes more than 1,000 activities with AI tutors, interactive games, simulations, well-being check-ins, and a library of grade- and subject-specific activities. Teachers also have access to dashboards with real-time feedback and moderation so they can track student progress and develop tailored learning plans to meet students where they are.

“The education of our future generations is critically important; and to say our teachers are hard working and stretched in their classrooms to meet the needs of each student is an understatement,” said Anthony Godfrey, Ed.D., superintendent of Jordan School District.

“Partnering with SchoolAI allows us to introduce a tool in the classroom that lets teachers get valuable insights into their students’ preparedness level for each subject, making it easy to assist them in a personalized way that wasn’t possible before,” he said. “It does all of this in a scalable format that ensures our teachers can do more amazing work without being overburdened or burnt out.”

Prior to moving ahead with the full partnership, the school district launched a pilot program last fall. According to a press release, students taking part in the pilot program “have been encouraged and prompted to think deeper about the material they’re learning.” Additionally, the school district said SchoolAI’s platform has been used to help engage students who aren’t fluent in English.

“Artificial intelligence is going to be a part of everyday life for our students. We’re doing them a disservice if we’re not updating our concept of what it means to teach and learn with all the tools available to us now,” said Eric Price, principal of West Jordan Middle School. “As educators, we have to go beyond content sharing, which is how the curriculum was structured thus far, and embrace a new era of teaching our kids the skills needed for critical and conceptual thinking, no matter what level they’re starting from in the classroom.”
