Donate to our local news fund, help a nonprofit

We’re on a mission in 2022 to work on a year-long series about housing in Racine County and we need your help to fund it. For every $250 in donations that we receive, we’ll give a nonprofit one free month in advertising.

For Racine Unified School District students, the school year begins on Sept. 1. But if you need to know what time your child needs to be in their seats and ready to learn, here are the school start and end times.
