Education Task Force
If you are concerned about the public education in our community, get involved with the education task force. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month at 5:30 pm at Wilson Elementary School library, 4520 33rd Ave, Kenosha, WI, Door #8.
Meet Justine Hammelev-Jones
Justine Hammelev-Jones is the chair of the Education Task Force and is a teacher at Wilson Elementary School.
A Parent's Toolkit
The Education Task Force helps parents learn to advocate for their children. A Parent's Toolkit is a collaboration between National Alliance for Mental Illness, Kenosha Human Development Services and CUSH to help parents with the tools they need to help their children succeed.
Task Force Update
We are working on our communication with the school board. At the the last school board meeting Florence Hammelev went to the podium and spoke on the importance of more help (therapeutic/counseling) to our neediest schools.
Wilson El was informed they will lose their guidance counselor once a week (to Nash El) due to numbers. We are fighting the school board with the idea "equality does not mean equity"!
Every child needs someone in their life who takes the time to see and hear them. Members of CUSH mentor dozens of children in their schools. If your child needs a mentor or if you are interested in being a mentor for a child, contact CUSH.
Stand Up Kenosha
CUSH members serve on a task force to end bullying. The Education Task Force works with the Superintendent, school board members, principals, teachers, and parents.
