CHICAGO — Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn on Wednesday announced that $270 million from recent bond sales will go to 18 school districts, including $54 million for the Chicago Public Schools, for projects approved as part of the state’s multi-year, $31 billion capital program.

The money will help fund construction of new schools, classroom additions, renovations, and upgrades to existing facilities. Some of the districts will use the funds to help pay for repairs from flood and other weather-related damage.
