The Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board will vote Tuesday on a $33 million request to start buying land and drawing up plans for new schools and renovations, hoping to get a start on projects that will be part of a 2017 bond referendum.
The request would go to Mecklenburg County commissioners, who provide the money for school construction.
