Beloit 200, a group of local business and civic leaders, launched and incubated the Kids First Beloit initiative to ensure that Beloit can provide all 7,000 students in our community access to a high-quality school now and in the future.
These leaders recognized that the future of our city and their businesses is directly linked to the future of Beloit’s schools. Not only must all of Beloit’s children have access to an exceptional public school now, these leaders saw the need to create public schools that will attract and retain new families to support the needs of our workforce and to help our community grow and thrive into the future. Kids First Beloit is a 501(c)3 led and funded by leaders who are committed to the Beloit community.
The Beloit Community must think about public education differently. We need to support and improve the Beloit School District. We need to embrace new quality choices. We must remember that public education is an investment in our children – Beloit children need more – more quality – more choice – more opportunity.
