When I joined the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees in 2014, the district and Bullis Charter School had just finalized a five-year agreement to set aside our differences and work toward a mutually beneficial, long-term school facilities solution. Today, we are finally on the cusp of executing that vision. With continued collaboration and transparency, I believe Bullis Charter School and the district can agree on a plan that benefits all local students.
In recent years, our community was relieved that Bullis Charter School and the district chose collaboration instead of lawsuits. With collaboration, the charter school and district schools and students thrived. Together, we passed a bond measure to resolve our school facilities challenges and a parcel tax to support educational programs for all of our students.
