CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The delay on the construction of Cincinnati's casino could have an impact on Cincinnati Public Schools.

Part of the casino revenue was supposed to go to CPS. However, construction on the casino has been suspended due to tension between the state of Ohio and the casino developers, Rock Gaming.

The Cincinnati Board of Education is meeting Wednesday afternoon and will talk about the possibility of adding a levy to the ballot.

FOX19.com will update this story following the meeting.
