Dear taxpayer: $48M more for schools?

Cincinnati Public Schools and Cincinnati Preschool Promise are joining forces for the November election.

It's a big levy - $48 million a year - but it eliminates the potential for the two groups to be pitted against each other on the ballot possibly draggine one another to defeat.

If it passes, CPS will get an extra $33 million a year, and $15 millon will go to preschool, including CPS and other community providers.

It will be a roughly 8-mill ask overall. The owner of a $100,000 home in CPS district already pays $1,424 a year in taxes, according to records from the Hamilton County Auditor. The new levy would be in addition to that amount - less than $300 a year extra, according to CPS school board president Ericka Copeland-Dansby.
