Data retrieved from Teaching Strategies Gold for Fall 2014 Note: The Washington Kindergarten Inventory of Developing Skills (WaKIDS) is a process that helps to ensure a successful start to the K-12 experience. WaKIDS has three components: Family Connection welcomes families into the K-12 system as partners in their child’s education, Whole-Child Assessment gives kindergarten teachers information about the social and emotional, physical, cognitive and linguistic development of the children in their classrooms and Early Learning Collaboration, which aligns practices of early learning professionals and kindergarten teachers to support smooth transitions for children. Data Source: Numbers of WaKIDS participant districts are based on preliminary information from the Washington State Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) and includes those that voluntarily adopted into the program early (before they are required by the state).

The sources of this data are the annual October headcounts April 22, 2014. Note: The number and percent of students enrolled in public K-12 schools who applied for free or reduced price meals at their school. Data reflect only those enrolled students who applied as of October 1 of each year. These includes the number of students who applied and were eligible for free or reduced priced meals. These numbers do not necessarily reflect use of the service. The federal income eligibility guidelines are 135% FPL (poverty guide) for free school meals, and 185% FPL for reduced price school meals. These guidelines are available online.

Data were retrieved on April 2, 2014 from the datafiles "MSP/HSPE Scores by District" and "MSP/HSPE Scores by State". Note: The percentage of third graders meeting WASL/MSP reading test standards for the school year. The Washington Assessment of Student Learning (WASL) is a test that reflects student knowledge based on the state’s Essential Academic Learning Requirements (EALRs). The WASL was administered to students in grades 3 through 10 from 1997 to 2009. It was replaced in 2010 by the state’s Measures of Student Progress (MSP) and the High School Proficiency Exam (HSPE). More information can be found online. This was the last year all schools used a common assessment.
