KENOSHA — Kenosha Unified School District (KUSD) is now offering even more online learning options for their students.

Due to the coronavirus, all schools have been forced to close and offer online classes to their students. Now, KUSD is offering even more tools to help their students during this time.

Beginning Monday, staff will begin offering "appropriate and regularly updated non-graded online learning opportunities," the district's website says (emphasis from district). This is in addition to already-existing online resources and activity sheets distributed with meals.

In the next few weeks, KUSD teachers will be reaching out to their students to reinforce skills and knowledge that aligns with the district curriculum.

The district is also surveying families to see who needs technology so they can work to get devices to students. To take that survey, click here.

Families are being asked to complete the survey by Friday, April 3. A plan for distributing the technology is forthcoming, as the district needs to see the results on the survey first.

Teachers will offer office hours for students who have questions or need assistance with assignments. The district is also expected students to spend a specific number of hours each day doing classwork. The time requirements vary based on age.

Elementary school students are expected to spend one hour per day on classwork. Middle schoolers should spend approximately 1.5 hours on work, and high schools should spend around 1 hour, per course, per week.

The district broke down these hours in a post on their website. To read the entire update from the district, click here.
