Aldermen draft resolution to create Kenosha only school district
Kenosha Alderpersons David Bogdala, Anthony Nudo and Steve Bostrom have drafted a resolution to have Kenosha form its own school district.
The trio say they have heard from their constituents about their displeasure with the Kenosha Unified School Board. They are attempting to give a voice to those concerned citizens through this resolution.
All KUSD School Board members were contacted via e-mail, and the only one to respond thus far was Bob Nuzzo.
Nuzzo said he didn’t understand the purpose of the resolution, nor what the constituents are displeased about.
“What problems with the Board do the constituents have?” Nuzzo asked. “Because basically, the city of Kenosha determines the make-up of the Board with the election process.” He stated that he would like to see more business people such as himself on the Board. “We have a better split right now; we’ve had a lot of action and good discussion. Not everyone agrees on everything, but that’s to be expected on a board. You wouldn’t want everyone agreeing on everything.”
Nuzzo said that, being a Somers resident, he would like to see the city of Kenosha split out. He didn’t feel that Kenosha would get the better deal, though, because he stated that he feels that the performance of the Pleasant Prairie and Somers schools are higher than the Kenosha schools.
Other Board members and administration who were contacted referred the writer to Gary Vaillancourt, KUSD’s chief communication officer, for comment. So far, no comment has been received from Vaillancourt.
