Amazingly, the CPS Board of Education has voted unanimously to put this levy on the ballot, have said if it is approved by voters, proceeds will be used for preschool expansion as well as strengthening neighborhood schools, expanding the availability of technology for students, and more thoroughly preparing students for careers or college.

Subsequently, the 5-year life’s period of the levy will begin in 2016, and the amount will appear on property bills in 2017 if approved.
