November ballots will include a levy for Cleveland Municipal Schools.

The Cleveland Board of Education unanimously voted Tuesday to put issue to voters.

An affirmative vote would extend the operating levy for four more years. It was originally passed by voters in 2012.

The levy generates 69.7 million dollars a year for the district--10 percent of the operating budget.

The district claims the levy is central to reforms made since the implementation of 'The Cleveland Plan,' including a 14 percent increase in the graduation rate since 2011.
