The KIDS team invites teachers and administrators NEW to the assessment tool to register for one of the statewide trainings below.

The KIDS Training and the Observing and Documenting for KIDS training prepares teachers to observe, assess, document, and report on children's development using the KIDS assessment tool.  Teachers also will review and reflect on evidence in relation to the KIDS domains, measures, and developmental levels. 

The KIDS Training introduces teachers to the layout of KIDS as well as having the opportunity to participate in reviewing and reflecting on evidence to rate students progress along a developmental continuum. 

The Observing and Documenting for KIDS training supports the application of KIDS by refining observation skills, documentation of evidence, and the use of data to support and inform instruction.  

At the end of the registration process, you will be able to select the days of training you will attend.
