KIDS: Kindergarten Individual Development Survey

The Illinois Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) has successfully been implemented in many kindergarten classrooms throughout the state of Illinois. If you have not attended a two day KIDS teacher training session, you are encouraged to sign up for an administrator's workshop. District Administrators, Building Principals and Assistant Principals are encouraged to attend a half-day workshop on this statewide kindergarten assessment. During this session, administrators will be introduced to the KIDS instrument through an overview of its structure, components and data reports. Understanding the training process, the resources available and the data reports from KIDS will enable administrators to support kindergarten teachers throughout the process of implementation.

Training dates/sites will be continuously updated.  If you are interested in a KIDS training, please contact Michelle Escapa at 217-801-6566.
