Illinois KIDS Trainings for Kindergarten Teachers for the 2016/2017
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.

Illinois KIDS Half-Day Administrator Trainings 2016/2017
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 hosting a training, please contact Lynsay Alexander at 630-652-7420.
