School Notes:

Gateway has a rich and proud heritage in local and national career training education. Original state legislation establishing adult and technical education was enacted in 1911. The first technical school in Wisconsin, the nation's first publicly supported technical institution, began that same year in downtown Racine as the name predecessor to Gateway Technical College. A state- sanctioned technical school opened in Kenosha in 1912. Kenosha County established the first Vocational, Technical and Adult Education District under state law in 1965, which allowed district formation beyond city limits on July 1, 1966. Walworth County joined the Kenosha District in 1967 to form District 6, and the City of Racine expanded services on July 1, 1967, to include Racine County. On July 1, 1971, a new Vocational, Technical and Adult Education District 6 was formed, comprised of Kenosha, Racine, and Walworth Counties. In 1994 the state technical district system became the Wisconsin Technical College System. The name "Gateway" was adopted October 19, 1972, by the District Board for the Gateway District, replacing reference to District 6, with campuses at Elkhorn, Kenosha, and Racine. As was the case in 1911, Gateway today continues to meet the need for skilled workers in technical-oriented fields. Gateway offers instructional programs from its campuses and through distance learning opportunities, such as online courses, to approximately 29,000 students annually. The Kenosha Campus features 27 Associate Degree options, as well as numerous Advanced Technical Diplomas and Gateway certificates. The Kenosha Campus was proud to introduce its Health Career Labs, utilizing state of the art learning equipment, including the first Patient Simulator of its kind in Southeastern Wisconsin. The computer-operated Simulator allows students to react to real-world medical issues with the consequences of their actions simulated by the equipment. Numerous health career training options are available on the Kenosha Campus. All Gateway sites in Kenosha , Racine and Walworth Counties are fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
