The Caledonia village board is expected to discuss whether it should put an advisory referendum about forming an independent Caledonia School District on the April ballot.

The issue will be discussed at a special board meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 21 at the East Side Community Center, 6156 Douglas Ave.

There is also a rush to get the referendum question phrased because the deadline to give the question to the county is 5 p.m. Tues,, Jan. 27 to get it on the ballot in time for the spring election on April 7.

A group of about 34 Caledonia residents presented the idea of pulling out of the Racine Unified School District and create their own school district in Caledonia in August.

The steps in creating a Caledonia School District include forming a steering committee, asking the village board to back a feasibility study, seeking funding for the study, getting information out to the community about the results of the feasibility study, gathering signatures for a referendum and then ultimately holding an election, said Brian Dey, Caledonia resident and former Racine Unified School District board member.

Over 1,000 Caledonia residents signed a school referendum petition in November. The village board has not   sought funding for revising a 2008 feasibility study.
