Read the Bullis facilities offer yourself

Los Altos School District officials submitted their final facilities offer for 2012-2013 to Bullis Charter School Saturday night (March 30). You can read the documents yourself here – 5 hyperlinks below lead to the original pdfs.

A summary describes offering charter school students more space at Egan Junior High School than last year, plus ancillary space at Blach Intermediate School.

Trustees voted unanimously at their March 26 board meeting to draft an offer ultimately alloting charter students 7.7 acres of space on the Egan campus and add two more portables for onsite day-care facilities. At Blach, they approved offering approximately 3.7 acres of space, four portables and access to facilities such as science labs.

The district recommended that the charter school house kindergarten through sixth-grade students at Egan, and junior high students at Blach. The charter school forecasts 54 seventh- and eighth-graders next year. If you want even more detail on the legal details of the district's offer, exhibits A-G and exhibit H cover subjects such as attendance overlays and reasonable equivalence analysis.

Los Altos School District trustee Doug Smith posted the documents on his blog LASD Observer and added a few comments giving his take on why the new offer met legal standards.
