A year and a half after voters approved a $150 million bond for the Los Altos School District, officials are taking steps toward purchasing a property for a 10th school campus.

District trustees are scheduled Monday to review and possibly approve a term sheet, initiating the process of purchasing 5150 El Camino Real, a 4-acre site that currently houses an office complex.

LASD trustee submits resignation

Los Altos School District Trustee Tammy Logan announced at the June 13 board meeting her intention to resign from the board.

Logan, who has served on the board for six years, cited personal reasons for her departure and added that she is resigning at this time so that voters in November can select a candidate to fill the remaining two years of her term.

LASD expected to finalize land purchase for BCS


Los Altos School District trustees were scheduled Monday night to approve the purchase of a 4-acre site at 5150 El Camino Real for the district’s 10th school property. The site is intended to be the new home of Bullis Charter School.

District officials declined to reveal the purchase price prior to Monday’s meeting, when the school board was slated to discuss the item in closed session. The announcement was expected to be made during a Measure N update agenda item. The meeting took place prior to the Town Crier’s Monday press deadline.

LASD trustees approve new parcel-tax survey

Los Altos School District trustees approved a new survey for residents aimed at gauging support for a possible parcel tax on the November ballot – this time including questions about sharing funds with Bullis Charter School.

Trustee Tammy Logan said that when trustees attended a Los Altos Hills City Council meeting earlier this year, councilmembers lobbied the district to share parcel-tax funds with the charter school.
