Charter School

KTEC is a public charter school and an instrumentality of the KUSD.  This means we teach the same benchmarks and standards as all students in the district.  We are held accountable in the same way and take the state standardized test.  Our students have all of the same services available to them through the district including OT, PT, speech, ELL services and special education plans.  Our students are also allowed to participate in middle-school sports through their boundary school.  There is no tuition and openings are filled through a lottery system.  We are called a charter school because we have a signed agreement (charter) with the district specifying the things we are allowed to do differently.  KTEC is accountable to our Governance Board.  They approve the budget and policy decisions.

KTEC receives state education money given to the district; however, only 80% of what non-charter schools are given.  While the district provides the student services listed above, KTEC uses its own funds for all facility expenses, technology, and staff development and salaries.  The KTEC Fit for Growth Endowment Fund is an account used to cover some of these costs.  Learn more about the fund here.

Drop Off and Pick Up

There is no transportation provided to KTEC by the school or the district.  If your student is planning on taking a Kenosha city bus, you can find bus fares, times and schedules at the link below.  Parents may also set up their own carpools with other parents.  

Kenosha Transportation Information

KTEC west campus  – Updates for the 2017-2018 school year will be posted soon.

              Please note:  

 – You are allowed to pull up and wait for your student on 32nd & 33rd Avenues.  You must remain in your car and be ready to pull away once you have your child; however, you CAN be ticketed if you arrive more than 10 minutes early for arrival or dismissal.

– You CAN be ticketed if you are parked within 4 feet of a drive.  Please do not block anyone’s driveway.  Please be courteous of our neighbors. 

– Don’t drop students off in the middle of the road or drive up on the wrong side of the road to drop off on the school side of the street. These are very dangerous situations for our children.

– Please drop off students by the staff located at Door 1 and Door 4 only. Don’t drop off anywhere else; It disrupts the flow of traffic.

– Please be patient in the drop off lane. Don’t exit the line and drive around them. These streets are too narrow and can’t accommodate that many lanes of traffic.

Thank you for your cooperation and help with this matter. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Hodges.

KTEC east campus

Students should be dropped off along the school side of the street on either 68th street or 16th avenue. To ensure safety for all and assist in traffic flow, please do NOT drop off on the opposite side of the street. Students should line up to enter the building. If you want to walk your student into the building, please park on 69th street. Please DO NOT park on 68th street or 16th avenue.
