Join KEA Today

When you join the KEA, you belong to a community of educators whose mission is to improve the working and learning conditions of Kenosha public schools. Your voice as a member serves as a source of encouragement and inspiration for your colleagues, your students, and your community.

Membership in the Kenosha Education Association puts you in good company with teachers, education support professionals, social workers, deans, instructional coaches, library media specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech and language pathologists, psychologists, guidance counselors, special health care nurses and other professionals who make sure all children have the support, resources and guidance they need to learn and succeed.

KEA gives members a strong voice to advocate for our students’ right to a quality public education, and input into administrative decisions that directly affect our students and our profession.
