    May 22, 2020 UPDATE

     

    The State Supreme Court struck down the Safer at Home Emergency Order 28 - except for the closure of schools for pupil instruction and extra curricular activities. According to the definition of Community Education, specified in State Statute 120.13(19) the school closure does not include Community Ed-related activities. School grounds remain closed through June 30, 2020. Clubs and recreational groups under Community Education that choose to operate are expected to do so under current guidelines that have been shared by the Waukesha County Health Department. They cannot operate on school grounds. To be clear, the District is not saying that these organizations should commence activities. We are saying that these organizations are not restricted by the current order 28, as it remains. 
     
    The graduation ceremony for the Kettle Moraine campus will be held as a virtual ceremony, taking place on June 14. The guidance we have received from Waukesha County Health department is to avoid gatherings of 50 people and to hold a virtual graduation ceremony. This affirms our decision. If guidance from the Waukesha County Health Department allows, we will have an in-person celebration on August 8. 
     
    The District's first priority is always the safety of our students, staff and families. We would like nothing more than a return to normal like everyone else and we will do so by adhering to the expert guidance coming from the Waukesha County Health Department.

    MISSION

    Kettle Moraine Community Education helps bring community members together to identify and link community needs and resources in a manner that helps people to help themselves raise the quality of life in their communities.

    HISTORY

    Many believe the Community Education birthplace to be Flint, Michigan. In 1934, philanthropist Charles Stewart Mott convinced the Flint Public Schools to remain open for community activities, when schools were not used for the regular K-12 education program. Milwaukee, however, had its own version of community education years earlier. In the early 1900s, Milwaukee schools were opened day and night to immigrants who needed basic skills in English. Dorothy C. Enderis, Milwaukee's recreation director, became known as the "Lady of the Lighted Schoolhouse". In 1911, Wisconsin became the first state in the nation to pass legislation providing open access to school facilities for all citizens. The modern era of community education in Wisconsin began in 1975, when the federal Community Education Act was passed.

    Community Education in Kettle Moraine was founded in September, 1979. The school doors were kept open for community use, adult and youth enrichment opportunities were offered, and recreation service was provided. The Board of Education authorized two half time positions to coordinate the new program. The programs and opportunities continue to expand with a wide range of offerings to meet the needs of all community members.
