Much to our disappointment, the referendum did not pass. It lost by 53 votes. That's it. Now Bill and I have some major decisions to make. Madison won't be in the school district for 2 (aff) years, so hopefully they can get something figured out in that amount of time. We talked about moving, but this could happen in the school district we move into too. I think at this point, we are going to stay put and see what happens. It isn't like we live in a rich school district (most of the cars here don't have billet grilles), but I expected that people would step up and help the kids. I guess not. I wish these people could go out to Will County and see how people are getting taxed out of their homes (I know, we were one of them) out there. Trust me, the taxes here aren't bad at all — even with an increase the referendum would have brought.
