Referendum Language Set for Fox Lake/Waupun School District Detatchment Vote

The language for November’s referendum to determine whether Fox Lake can detach from the Waupun School District and join the Randolph district has been set. On their ballot, voters will be asked to vote yes or no to the following question. “Shall the territory located within the City of Fox Lake and the Township of Fox Lake which is presently a part of the Waupun Area School District be detached from the Waupun Area School District and attached to the Randolph School District effective July 1, 2010?” The detachment process began after Waupun voted to close three elementary buildings this past spring, including Fox Lake. The districts plan to hold public hearings next month so voters can hear what the financial impact of the detachment would be.
