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.
