Waupun and Randolph School Districs to Split Cost of Fox Lake Detachment Referendum

The Waupun and Randolph School Districts will split the cost of a referendum that would allow the city and town of Fox Lake to detach from one and join the other. Waupun Superintendent Randy Refsland says because the referendum is the only item on the ballot the law mandates the districts pay the bill, which he says will run about $12,000. The two district will also be using the same firm to put together a financial impact study, which will show impact of Waupun losing Fox Lake and Randolph adding them. District officials expect the study to be completed before the end of the month, at which point Refsland says they’ll schedule at least four public hearings for residents to become familiar with the numbers.
