School Leadership | Kenosha Unified School District

School Leadership

The Office of School Leadership is responsible for supporting all of Kenosha Unified’s schools and the families who attend them. This includes all students in grades 4K through 12. The main goal of our office is to help our schools grow and to see our students achieve success. Much of our work hinges on ensuring our schools are staying current with recent trends, providing support to schools and providing support and information to parents as needed.
