The Los Altos School District has one recourse left in its current legal fight with Bullis Charter School. On Monday the Sixth District Court of Appeal declined to rehear the district's case and added language to its original opinion disputing some arguments in the district's appeal.
That means California's Supreme Court is the last stop for the district's claim that it provides "reasonably equivalent" facilities for the charter school. The Supreme Court might choose to weigh in on whether the district violates a state law mandating equal physical space for charter school students. Or it might not choose to hear the case at all, meaning that the court of appeal's decision stands. LASD officials said they would file the petition by Dec. 6, and expect to know by early March whether the Supreme Court will hear their case.
