Upcoming Events, Trainings and Recognition

KSDE’s annual Counting Kids Workshops begin Monday, Aug. 28

The Kansas State Department of Education’s (KSDE) annual Counting KIDS Workshops begin Monday, Aug. 28, and continue on selected dates through Sept. 13, in advance of the Sept. 20 Count Day.

These workshops provide school staff members with updated information used to report student enrollment in the KIDS system.

Make plans to attend one of the in-person sessions conducted at 11 locations – including two new host sites in Abilene and Olathe – to learn more about counting kids on Count Day and the information needed to enter for funding purposes. KSDE’s Laurel Murdie, director of Fiscal Auditing, leads each session.

KSDE Information Technology staff members also will discuss transitioning from KIDS data system to Kansas Education Data System (KEDS) pilot.

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 preferred workshop location. 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.

Please share the schedule with staff in your district who may need to attend.
