KIDS:  EVERY ILLINOIS CHILD READY FOR KINDERGARTEN​

The Kindergarten Individual Development Survey (KIDS) is an observational tool designed to help teachers, administrators, families and policymakers better understand the developmental readiness of children entering kindergarten.  KIDS is core to the Illinois State Board of Education’s (ISBE) goal that every child in Illinois deserves to attend a school wherein all kindergarteners are assessed for readiness.  Starting in Fall 2017, ISBE will require districts and kindergarten teachers across the state to use KIDS.

KIDS focuses on the knowledge, skills, and behaviors across four key domains that most impact long-term student success. The domains are: Approaches to Learning and Self-Regulation; Social and Emotional Development; Language and Literacy Development; and Cognition: Math. 

On this page, you will find information, tools and resources to implement KIDS in your community!​
