Addressing the Impact of the Opioid Crisis on Washington Schools and Communities

Washington state had the nation’s largest increase of overdose deaths between 2022-23, a 28% increase — totaling 3,024 deaths, with the vast majority coming from opioids and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl.

In this webinar, we hear from a statewide panel on the scale and impact of the opioid crisis on our communities and schools, legislation that came out of the 2024 Washington state Legislative Session to tackle deaths, how this legislation will be implemented, and how local communities and tribes are working with their government and healthcare agencies, as well as schools, to combat this epidemic.

Moderated by League of Education Voters CEO Arik Korman.

The Role of Artificial Intelligence in Education

Students from South Shore PreK-8

Earlier this year, Washington became the fifth state in the country to issue guidance on using Artificial Intelligence (AI) in schools. Teachers across the state are starting to incorporate AI in the classroom and in their work, now that educators are being encouraged to embrace this new, ever-evolving technology.

In our free webinar, we will define what AI is, explore the pros and cons of AI in the classroom, and discuss how AI can save time for educators and administrators.

Spanish interpretation and live closed captioning in English will be provided.

Moderated by League of Education Voters CEO Arik Korman.
