This is the homepage for the Kansas Individual Data on Students system. Here you can access the KIDS system by using your KSDE user name and password, find important documentation, register for training opportunities, and much more.

Important Announcements:

Due to the passage of SB367: Student Data Privacy Act (SDPA) by the Kansas Legislature, it is unlawful to display student-level data including name, SSID, or any other personally identifiable information in an email. This includes any email correspondence with KSDE. At this time, we encourage schools to send encrypted emails or password protected documents when sending questions that contain student-level data to KSDE. If you do not know how to protect a document with a password, see the guidance document that is located in the ‘Related KIDS Resources’ container on the ‘Documents’ tab of the KIDS website :
