Approval of the Intergovernmental Agreement between CCSD59 and the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago For After School Care Agreement – 7.02
CCSD59 and its various park districts have had agreements in place to provide before and after school recreation programs for CCSD59 families for elementary students.
