Events and Training

2014 Trainings


WaKIDS trainings will be scheduled in every ESD region and in some large districts the summer before the fall implementation of WaKIDS. Districts will be reimbursed for teacher participation in trainings held before the contracted school year, and for substitute costs for trainings held in September. Districts will also be reimbursed for experienced teachers who complete their Inter-Rater Reliability Certification between July 1, 2014 and September 30, 2014.

Although WaKIDS 201 is optional, districts are encouraged to strategically send at least one experienced WaKIDS teacher per building to the WaKIDS 201 training in order to bring back resources and strategies to share with the building team. All experienced teachers are encouraged to attend WaKIDS 201.

Teachers should select a training session in their own ESD or large district.

 

NOTE: Training dates are subject to change. Please check back often for updated training dates in your region.

+ WaKIDS Introduction 101 Teacher Training Schedule

Teacher Training description: WaKIDS 101 offers teachers who are new to WaKIDS an introduction to the purpose, structure, and possibility of WaKIDS in order to understand how all three components of WaKIDS help to smooth the transition into kindergarten. Participants will gain a better understanding of how observation is foundational to effective instruction and learn practical strategies for collecting, using, and sharing evidence. By the end of the session, teachers will have the basic skills to begin implementing all components of WaKIDS, including using Teaching Strategies GOLD® online. With the completion of their Teaching Strategies GOLD® Inter-Rater Reliability Certification, teachers will leave feeling confident and ready for fall.
