Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS)

This displays student information for the Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS). You can view details for an individual school, school district, Educational Service District, or the entire state. For information on WaKIDS, click on the WaKIDS web site (more info).

Caution: WaKIDS is required only in state-funded full-day kindergartens. Absence of data for schools with enrolled kindergarten students may indicate that full-day kindergarten students in these schools are not state-funded. For this same reason, student totals at district and state levels may appear smaller than their actual enrollments. In districts where only some of the kindergartners took part in WaKIDS, the results do not represent all of the kindergartners in the district.
