Fit for Growth Fund


KTEC educates over 1200 students each year! As a charter school within the KUSD public school system, KTEC receives 80% of the regular public school’s per-student allocation and zero tax dollars.  Creative fundraising and financial responsibility are exercised; however, we depend on corporate and community partnerships to continue to our success.

Our Fit for Growth Fund supports three areas vital to KTEC’s mission and growth:  Facility Expansion/Modernization – Professional Development/Dissemination – Updating Technology

Not a KTEC parent?  Why should you support KTEC when all schools need help?  

KTEC values partnerships for the hands-on, 21st century experiences they provide.  Having experts in their fields volunteer their time and link the classroom learning to the real world is immeasurable. Money does little on its own, but it is a necessity.

KTEC faces a different financial struggle than other public schools.  We are a part of the Kenosha Unified School District and charge no tuition. Openings are filled by lottery.  As a charter, we are allowed to meet the state standards using our own choice of curriculum, culture, and programs.  However;  as a charter school, we only receive 80% of the state funding other schools in our district receive, and ZERO tax dollars.  Not only do we receive less state funding, we pay for our own facilities maintenance (and we have two campus), technology, staff salaries, and professional development.  

Yet, our performance is outstanding. Click here to see KTEC’s latest state school report card.  

Your attendance at our Gala and/or donations for our raffle help us continue to provide generations of students prepared for post-secondary education and the workforce.  

We will continue our Fit for Growth Campaign to help provide the needed funds to support our mission of maintaining up-to-date technology & quality learning facilities to all KTEC students!Donate directly to the KTEC Endowment Fund
