KIDS Training Portal

This is our KIDS Training Portal. It provides an environment that allows you to explore the KIDS System.

There are ten lessons contained in the portal along with some additional KIDS reports. Each lesson provides the opportunity for you to explore the KIDS System in a safe, training environment that simulates searching for a student, uploading a batch file, resolving core student data mis-matches, and generating reports. All student-level data displayed in the KIDS Training portal is fake data.
  Follow the notes provided on each page of the lesson.

KIDS New Staff Training

KIDS New Staff training is offered as a free opportunity for interested staff. Sessions are intended for staff who have not used the KIDS Collection System before (or who have minimal experience with this system) and who will be responsible for submitting student data via KIDS. Instruction in the KIDS data elements and software submission processes is provided. Training for the 2016-2017 School year are now opened for your enrollment.  The following is a link to a past KIDS New Staff training video that we have recorded for your convenience.
