    I am not employed in a district. How do I become a WIDA coach without going through a district?  Please advise about available funding. Thank you.

    Ms. Russell,

    I mentioned your interest to Ms. Johnson, a Program Specialist from the DOE.  In short, she recommended you to contact the WIDA help desk( or call the WIDA help desk at 866-276-7735.  In addition, she mentioned that you might want to go to and look at the Professional Development section to read about what it takes to become a Certified WIDA Trainer.  I hope this helps!
