SAIS Online has been updated to allow children associated with proprietary child care centers to generate SAIS IDs, which are required for the Teaching Strategies GOLD assessment tool. When entering data into SAIS Online for these children, please enter just their personal information. This will generate the SAIS ID. Enrollments are not to be submitted for children who need a SAIS ID strictly for Teaching Strategies GOLD purposes. If, on the other hand, a child is receiving special education services then they will also need an enrollment submitted in order to generate state funding.
The documentation that teachers have collected over the years in GOLD is so beneficial. Through this information, programs will be able to track how their students are doing in K-12. There is no more letting our kids go and wondering what became of them. Administrators will be able to see how effective their programs have been, especially when it comes to “Move On When Reading.”
