The 2016 football season will go on as scheduled for all Chicago Public League teams.
The Chicago Teachers Union and the CPS Board of Education have reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract. School will be in session on Tuesday, Oct. 11, and the Public League’s football teams will not miss any games.

Here is the list of which Public League teams would be in the playoffs, if they started today.
