Bullis Charter School Board of Directors discussed their potential growth for the 2013-2014 school year at their Monday (Oct. 29) night meeting. To serve more families in the community, the board agreed to add an additional kindergarten, first, second and third grade (a 15 percent growth) in addition to their normal growth of an additional sixth and eighth grade sections.
While the board's initial discussion included the possibility of two kindergartens and one additional K-3 strand, after discussing with Superintendent Wanny Hersey, the Proposition 39 committee returned with the new agreement.
The only action taken on this item was to approve the Proposition 39 committee to make their enrollment request to the Los Altos School District by Thursday (Nov. 1), without any specifics to the discussed growth plan.
The enrollment request is the first step in the 2013-2014 Proposition 39 facilities offer, which requires that the district provide reasonably equivalent facilities for Bullis Charter School's in-district students. The charter school board members assured that all the new classrooms would be filled with in-district students.
