The Office of Knowledge Information Data Systems (KIDS) works collaboratively with regional representatives on the Architectural Standards Committee to develop standards that benefit and compliment KETS initiatives. These standards support KETS and provide consistency within districts. Standards help ensure system supportability across all districts.
Standards approved by KIDS are developed solely for KDE and local school districts to support the KETS Network. There are also Commonwealth Office of Technology (COT) Standards
in place to support the state technology vision. These standards are separate from KIDS standards but are available as guides for districts developing applicable solutions.
