January 2013

This report includes the finding and recommendations of a workgroup created by the Washington Legislature to address issues identified in the 2012 Legislative session pertaining to the Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS).

The workgroup, which was established in Engrossed Substitute House Bill 2586 (ESHB 2586), was directed by the Legislature to develop recommendations regarding the implementation of WaKIDS, how to implement WaKIDS in half-day classrooms, and how to reduce the number of other tests administered in kindergarten classrooms.
