KIDS Training Tutorials

These KIDS tutorials provide an environment that allows you to explore the KIDS System.

There are seven lessons contained here along with some additional KIDS reports. Each lesson provides the opportunity for you to explore the KIDS System in a safe training environment. They simulate 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 tutorials are fake data.
  Follow the notes provided on each page of the lesson.

KSDE Training Portal

KIDS New Staff training and DQC trainings (both Certification and recertification) are available to anyone.  KIDS is focused for anyone who uses KIDS.  DQC focuses on people who use KIDS but can be applied to anyone who uses KSDE Authenticated Applications.  You must login to the KSDE Training Portal to sign up for courses and to complete the content.  This page is not the training site, just an informational page.  Logging into this page or to the Common Authentication page will not give you access to training.


Below are the links regarding how to enroll in training for the 2018-2019 school year. 

Follow the short video about how to create an account and enroll in a course that works for you.
