Grayslake Community School District 127 passed a resolution at its school board meeting on Thursday night, allowing Grayslake Central and Grayslake North to leave the Fox Valley Conference and establish a new, yet-to-be-named athletic conference, a spokeswoman told the Northwest Herald.

Wauconda's school board also voted to leave for that conference on Thursday.

With the move, along with Woodstock and Woodstock North’s departure to the Kishwaukee River Conference, the FVC has nine remaining members set for the 2016-17 school year.

It had 14 last season, along with Johnsburg, which left for the Big Northern Conference for this season.

In addition to Grayslake Central and Grayslake North, Antioch, Grant, Lakes, North Chicago and Round Lake are expected to join the new conference, continent upon approval from their respective school boards. The conference is expected to begin play in 2016-17.
