A group of about 34 Caledonia residents want to look at pulling out of the Racine Unified School District and create their own school district in Caledonia.
Caledonia resident and former Racine Unified School District board member Brian Dey explained to the Caledonia Village Board on Monday what it would need to do to create its own school district.
But Dey told the group that he’s looking for more community involvement.
About 1,800 of the 3,800 students living in Caledonia attend Racine Unified Schools, which has about 21,000 students in the district, but the village foots about 25 percent of the bill, Dey said.
The village itself could not create the school district, but rather at least 9,000 people would need to sign a petition. However, the group wants to look at changing the state law to make it easier for them to create the school district.
