It is often said that prior to third grade, students are learning to read, beginning in third grade they are reading to learn. Among other things, third grade reading proficiency is widely considered one of the most important predictors of a student’s likelihood to graduate high school and find success in their career.
Similarly, eighth grade math proficiency serves as a strong predictor of high school success and college entrance. These two measurements are fundamental indicators in our data dashboards, reflecting the vital stages of a student's academic journey.

Kenosha Unified School District will receive $45 million in American Rescue Plan funding, via the Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) Fund to address the impact of the pandemic on our district's students.
In May, Building Our Future and Kenosha Unified School District partnered to hear from the Kenosha community on important priorities for use of COVID relief funds. Twenty-two community members joined sessions on May 11 and 17, 2022, to share their priorities for spending. They answered the question: How would you spend the funding to maximize learning and counteract the effects of COVID? The data in this report represents the views of the 22 community members who attended and cannot be assumed to represent the entire community. However, strong themes emerged across the two sessions.
When considering KUSD as a whole, the community overwhelmingly prioritized mental health supports for students. Additional areas of focus include staffing, out-of-school time, enrichment, and academic supports.
See our report for how those community recommendations break down by student grade level.
