WaKIDS 101 is the one-time training required for all kindergarten teachers new to WaKIDS. This includes Transitional Kindergarten and certificated special education teachers who provide instruction to kindergarten students with disabilities. The training introduces all three components of WaKIDS, including its purpose, structure, and possibility. Participants will gain a better understanding of how observation is foundational to effective instruction and learn practical strategies for collecting, using, and sharing evidence. Teachers must successfully complete WaKIDS 101 in order to administer WaKIDS. Beginning July of 2020, the teacher training for WaKIDS 101 will be moved from a hybrid in-person and online course to a comprehensive online-only training course. Teachers will have two weeks from the start date of the online session they choose to complete the course and interrater reliability. 

Principals and administrators are able to join the Introduction to WaKIDS for District and School Administrators course. Please see our Events and Training for more detail.
