The Kenosha School of Technology Enhanced Curriculum
Our KTEC Charter contract was originally approved by the Kenosha Unified School District Board of Education on April 4, 2007. We are a Preschool through eighth grade learning community. As a charter school, we are required to fill any open spaces using a random drawing lottery.
The mission of Kenosha School of Technology Enhanced Curriculum (KTEC), a Preschool-8 charter school that engages all students in an innovative learning environment, is to prepare students for success in a global society through academic excellence by the use of 21st Century skills and technology integration.
The curriculum at the Kenosha School of Technology Enhanced Curriculum will cover the Common Core Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards while the school reserves the right to reorder to better suit the needs of KTEC students. Curriculum materials and teaching strategies will be chosen by the staff of KTEC in conjunction with the mission of the school and aligned with the mission of the Kenosha Unified School District and state standards.
Technical/informational text reading, writing, and literacy will be taught in all grades. At KTEC, students will learn about research skills beginning in Kindergarten and continue to add information literacy strategies each year. The Library Media Center Specialist will be a critical team player helping to plan units with the classroom teacher that integrate technology across the curriculum.
KTEC instructional staff will ensure mastery of Common Core Standards through the use of advanced technology tools to enhance student engagement and learning. Some of the technology “tools” students will utilize in order to successfully complete learning tasks are MP3 players, the Internet, digital media devices, graphing calculators, Active Boards, and computers.
