2014-2015 SMSC Collection

The 2014-2015 KIDS SMSC Collection is open and is scheduled to close on Friday, January 9, 2015.

The 2014-2015 SMSC (formerly TITL) Collection focuses on small districts eligible for Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) funding –this Collection is not about students who participate in Title I programs. In the past many districts have submitted data for the SMSC collection even though they don’t qualify for REAP funding – please note that although all districts can submit data for the SMSC collection if they choose to do so, only those that are eligible for REAP funding need to submit. If you have questions about whether your district qualifies for REAP funding and needs to submit for the SMSC collection, please contact Nicole Clark

To prepare your school or district's SMSC submissions, we encourage you to visit the

The 2014-2015 STCO Collection gathers the student, course, and teacher link along with the outcome/grade that the student earned in the course. The STCO Collection is open for the 2014-2015 school year.

STCO records are required to be submitted to KIDS early in the school year in order for rosters to be available in K-FIT and Success in School applications. Please refer to the Submission Details Document-STCO 2014-2015 to see a list of required and optional data elements. This document can be found under the Related KIDS Resources sub container on the “Documents” tab of this website.


2014-2015 TEST Collection

The 2014-2015 KIDS TEST Collection is now open and will close on Friday, June 12, 2015.
The KIDS TEST Collection focuses on gathering student data for State assessments. A student’s most current TEST record by Accountability School and test subject will be used to provide information to CETE for State assessments. The assessment results of all students submitted to KIDS on TEST records will be counted by KSDE for accountability purposes. The demographic fields from the most recently submitted TEST record are used to determine student sub-groups for accountability purposes.

To prepare your school or district's TEST submissions, we encourage you to visit the
