When Paul Vallas served as CEO of Chicago Public Schools, he led an unprecedented $3 billion school construction project that changed the face of education in the city forever. Over 100 new schools were built or significantly renovated throughout the city, including in numerous underserved neighborhoods that desperately needed new schools. Paul also made sure that the project benefited the entire community by ensuring that 55% of the construction contracts went to minority and women owned companies and all the work was prevailing wage.
