An Update From the Indiana Department of Education for September 29, 2023

A Message from Dr. Katie Jenner

Katie Jenner Headshot

Nearly every week someone stops me to talk about the impacts of artificial intelligence (AI) on education. There are a lot of ways we could look at it, and while there will certainly be some challenging impacts that we have to work through, having talked to some of you, I think our question also must be, how might we leverage AI to improve education for our students

Considering this question, we set out to speak with some national leaders in this space, as well as state and local leaders too. One such conversation was particularly compelling. This spring, I had an opportunity to jump on a call with Superintendent Peggy Buffington and numerous teachers from School City of Hobart, who happened to be an early pilot school corporation for Khanmigo. An interesting TED Talk you might want to check out is Sal Khan of Khan Academy (and now, Khanmigo too) sharing How AI could save (not destroy) education.

As I have shared with you before, nearly all of the tactics we are deploying on a statewide scale started locally. And, this is yet another example of a local leader leaning in and having the courage to try something new, if it might benefit teachers and students. This is one of several conversations with local school leaders that triggered the development of a statewide, competitive grant opportunity on AI more broadly. Here’s a little bit more about Peggy’s experience.

Why did you decide to do the Khanmigo pilot?
With AI being a hot topic in the news, the School City of Hobart team was exploring how ChatGPT would change the landscape of how we teach and learn. We already had teachers who were experiencing students turning in work using it. There was a problem though - the teacher was not quite sure how to handle the grading aspect of this. We then had high school teachers wanting us to explore AI “cheating” software. We had to have some serious conversations about not running from technology and embracing what it could do to elevate our work - whether student or staff. As our district uses Khan Academy, some of this conversation about AI was given to Sal Khan. He asked us to be a part of a pilot program of his organization's version of AI, Khanmigo, to offer feedback to make the product everything teachers and students would want it to be. Our staff and students were integral to the design process, contributing their insights and experiences to shape this tool. It was an honor to be part of this journey, and we are excited to see where it leads us next.

What has been the greatest benefit to teachers and students?
Our teachers have found a way to work smarter, not harder, with Khanmigo. This AI tool serves as a “teacher assistant,” always ready to help with everything from refreshing knowledge to creating lesson hooks, writing exit ticket questions, creating lesson plans, writing learning objectives, and co-creating rubrics. We know there are endless possibilities with more professional development. The transformation in the classroom environment is also exciting. It's there to help students chat with literary characters, craft stories, navigate the college admissions process, and receive coaching to achieve their academic and career goals. One student participant in the pilot even declared, "This is more fun than TikTok!" What a testament of the power and appeal of Khanmigo! So, with Khanmigo, the Brickies are working hard and smart.

How do you see the AI grant further supporting your innovation efforts at Hobart?
When you talk to our AI team, Khanmigo is not just an AI tool; it's a commitment to the future of education. It's a promise to our students that we are investing in their potential, equipping them with the tools they need to succeed in a rapidly evolving world. We believe our students will not only be adept with the tech that they see in the real world - they will also be far better self-advocates and users of language. Khanmigo also assists students in being more successful, autonomous learners, which will make them more innovative in the workforce.

As you can see from Peggy’s powerful reflections, these sorts of examples were the impetus for launching the AI-Powered Platform Pilot Grant, aimed at supporting professional development for student high-dosage tutoring and reducing teacher workload. Applicants were encouraged to consider academic impact data when strategically targeting a specific building, grade level, subject area, or student population most in need of additional support. 

Grant recipients were notified last week, with over $2 million awarded to 36 recipients (a total of 112 schools), supporting over 45,000 students statewide with an AI-powered platform during the remainder of the 2023-2024 school year! In addition to the student impact of this grant opportunity, 2,500 educators will also be trained to integrate AI tools into instruction. This is especially important considering a recent national report showing that 87% of teachers, principals, and district leaders have never received professional development about AI.

Congratulations to the recipients of this grant, and thank you for your willingness to embrace new technology for the benefit of our students! We look forward to seeing the unique ways you deploy this funding and what we will learn from you as a result.

As always, thank you for all that you do for students!

Important Legislative Update

UPDATE: Legislatively-Required and Other Guidance Surrounding Newly-Enacted Legislation

Following the close of each legislative session, the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) immediately begins working to implement newly-enacted legislation impacting K-12 education, which includes compiling guidance for educators. Guidance is a product of robust cross-agency collaboration and partnership with countless stakeholders. New to the document this week:

REMINDER: 2023 Mandatory and Voluntary Graduation Rate Audits

The mandatory and voluntary graduation rate audits open on Wednesday, October 4, and close on Friday, October 27. If you are unsure if your school was selected for the mandatory graduation rate audit, please check the list of mandatory audit schools. All schools are welcome to participate in the voluntary graduation rate audit. If a change needs to be made to a student in the 2023 cohort, this will need to go through the voluntary graduation rate audit (unless you are trying to change their status to a graduate status – you can do that now in Data Exchange). The voluntary graduation rate audit involves submitting the student on the voluntary graduation rate audit excel template and submitting the supporting documentation. (Enrollment key: AccountabilityCommunity) The voluntary graduation rate audit is the final opportunity to request a change to the 2023 cohort.If you are submitting a voluntary graduation rate audit and are subject to the mandatory graduation rate audit, submit both audits in the same, single submission. Contact IDOE's Office of Accountability with any questions. 


REMINDER: Submit Your Graduates on Data Exchange 

The deadline to submit graduates on Data Exchange is quickly approaching. Please check your 2023 cohort on EdData to ensure that all students who graduated have a graduate status on the cohort report. Students who graduated and do not have a graduate status should be submitted now on Data Exchange. Graduates are submitted with a 2024 Enrollment Record and a Graduate Record. Students have until Saturday, September 30, 2023, to meet the graduation requirements to be a 2023 graduate. Contact IDOE's Office of Accountability with any questions. 


REMINDER: 2023 Federal Accountability Audit Requests Due Friday, October 6 

The final deadline to submit a graduate on Data Exchange is Friday, October 6. Please check your 2023 cohort on EdData to ensure that all students who graduated have a graduate status on the cohort report.  Students who graduated and do not have a graduate status should be submitted now on Data Exchange. Graduates are submitted with a 2024 Enrollment Record and a Graduate Record. Students have until Saturday, September 30, 2023 to meet the graduation requirements to be a 2023 graduate. Contact IDOE's Office of Accountability with any questions. 

Office of Student Assessment

NEW: PSAT/NMSQT Test Preparation

Office of Information Technology

REMINDER: Data Collection from Career and Technical Education (CTE) Centers  

For the 2023-2024 school year, CTE centers are expected to submit the same data to IDOE as was submitted in the 2022-2023 school year. CTE centers will do this via Data Exchange. This memo explains how the various types of CTE programs should be reporting data in concert with local high schools. As new expectations come online for course-based data including graduation plans, course enrollments, and course outcomes, it is even more critical that the entire student academic record comes directly to IDOE from the source data systems. IDOE and the Indiana Commission for Higher Education (CHE) will continue to work together to improve the integration and streamlining of data collection from schools and CTE centers. Finally, IDOE has produced extensive documentation to support the accurate submission of required data elements. This documentation is available on the Knowledge Hub. Contact the IT helpdesk with any questions.


REMINDER: Cybersecurity for Education Toolkit 2.0 Now Available

Developed by the Indiana Executive Council on Cybersecurity (IECC), with support from IDOE, the Cybersecurity Infrastructure and Security Agency (CISA), and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS), the updated Cybersecurity for Education Toolkit 2.0 is filled with a wide range of cybersecurity best practices, resources and tips for everyone in your K-12 school community. Visit Indiana’s Cybersecurity Hub webpage for additional resources for inside and outside of the classroom.


REMINDER: CISA Offers Free Cybersecurity Resources for K-12 Schools

As shared in early February, CISA released “Partnership to Safeguard K-12 Organizations from Cybersecurity Threats,” with an accompanying toolkit to provide schools targeted resources to improve their cybersecurity posture. These resources call out very specific actions that schools can take to drastically reduce their cybersecurity risk. Schools are strongly encouraged to review and implement these recommendations as we begin the 2023-2024 school year. Also, the Free Cybersecurity Services and Tools link below provide access to many great resources that will assist schools as they implement the recommended actions. 


REMINDER: Resolution of Conflicts for Membership 2023

Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, IDOE will no longer be brokering the resolution of conflicts after the certification date. If, after the certification date, schools are unable to resolve an outstanding conflict, schools may petition the State Board of Education for an adjustment in their average daily membership (ADM) count by providing the Board with evidence supporting an adjustment in their membership claim. The process for petitioning the Board will be made available this fall and communicated in Dr. Jenner’s Weekly Update. IDOE wants to make sure each school receives full funding for the students they are serving and completes the Membership count within two to three weeks of the count date. This process will help achieve both of these goals. See this memo for a more complete explanation of this change. Contact the Data Exchange Team with any questions.
