Every year, Counting KIDS workshops are presented by KSDE Fiscal Auditing in late August/early September to discuss counting students on count day and the information to enter in KIDS (Kansas Individual Data on Students) for funding purposes. KIDS training staff also present and are available for questions.

For 2020, about thirty individual Counting Kids workshop sessions will be offered via ZOOM. Each workshop will be about 2 ½ hours and the same material will be discussed at each session; participants do not need to attend multiple sessions. To help encourage questions and discussion, we will limit the number of participants and will offer the workshops by “region.” We strongly encourage you to attend (via Zoom) the workshop region or “location” that you would have normally attended in person.”


About one week before the Workshop is scheduled, you will receive an email from Makayla Auldridge (mauldridge@ksde.org) with the Zoom link and password needed to admit you to the session.
