Upcoming Events, Trainings and Recognition

Registration now open for 2023 Counting KIDS Workshops

Registration is open for the annual Counting KIDS Workshops led by Laurel Murdie, director of the Kansas State Department of Education’s Fiscal Auditing team.

Make plans to attend one of the in-person sessions conducted at 11 locations – including two new host sites – to learn more about counting kids on count day and the information needed to enter for funding purposes. Also, KSDE Information Technology staff members will discuss transitioning from the KIDS data system to Kansas Education Data System (KEDS) pilot, plus additional measures to enhance data privacy.

Workshops are scheduled from Aug. 28 through Sept. 13, in advance of the Sept. 20 Count Day. The sessions are not recorded, but all workshop materials will be made available on the KSDE Fiscal Auditing webpage at a later time.

Registration is required. Online registration is set up through the KSDE Training Portal https://learning.ksde.org/. Select Counting Kids Workshops and sign up for the session you want to attend. First-time users of the KSDE Training Portal must select the “Request an Account’ icon on the Portal homepage. There is no cost to attend, however, due to limited seating, registration may close at some locations.
