WaKIDS

 

The Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS) is a transition process that helps to ensure a successful start to the K-12 experience and connect the key adults in a child’s life.

Three Components

  1. Family connection welcomes families into the Washington K-12 system as partners in their child’s education.
  2. Whole-child assessment helps kindergarten teachers learn about the skills and strengths of the children in their classrooms so they can meet the needs of each child.
  3. Early learning collaboration aligns practices of early learning professionals and kindergarten teachers to support smooth transitions for children.
