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.

The KIDS Refresher training is for teachers who have previously attended a KIDS Training, however, have either not implemented the assessment tool or need the most current information. Teachers will be refreshed on the assessment tool, the development levels, descriptors, and how to review and reflect on the evidence to rate students progress along the development continuum.  

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

If you are interested in a KIDS training, please contact Michelle Escapa at 217-801-6566.
