Despite Saturday's snowstorm, the Caledonia School District Steering Committee collected 5 percent of the required 9,700 signatures for its petition on a referendum to create a new school district and break away from the Racine Unified School District.
Last week was the kickoff of its campaign, which led up to a Monday evening meeting that discussed the reasoning behind the movement and the process to be followed, according to Brian Dey, president of the steering committee.
The CSDSC will hold more events throughout RUSD and will be seeking signatures from now through the June 30 deadline. The group's next meeting is March 9, at the Caledonia Eastside Community Center to discuss next steps.
