Racine County Executive Jonathan Delagrave will visit the Sturtevant Village Board meeting Tuesday for a question-and-answer session with trustees and residents.

Delagrave will make a short presentation prior to the Q&A session. His appearance is scheduled on the agenda before the board takes up any resolutions and ordinances.

Also on the agenda is the expected approval of $15,000 so Sturtevant can participate in a Wisconsin Taxpayers Association study about the feasibility of an independent school district. The total cost of the study is $45,000, and the Villages of Caledonia and Mount Pleasant are expected to foot the rest of the bill.

The WISTAX study is expected to look at the following options:

  • Three separate K-8 districts and a unified high school
  • Three separate K-12 districts
  • Caledonia as its own district; Mount Pleasant and Sturtevant as a second district
  • One new unified school district

Sturtevant and Caledonia residents in April approved non-binding referendums asking if they support the exploration of a school district separate from Racine Unified, and those villages included the expenditure in their 2016 budgets.

Mount Pleasant residents did not have the question on their ballots, and the cost for a study was not included in the 2016 budget, but Finance Committee members in that village are expected to take up the matter in the coming weeks.

The Sturtevant Village Board meeting begins at 6 p.m. Tuesday at Village Hall, 2801 89th Street. Call (262) 86-7200.
