Looming 10th-site decision frays district-BCS relationship

The Los Altos School District Board of Trustees not only discussed the 10th-school-site decision at its Sept. 10 board meeting, but also decried a lack of transparency from the Bullis Charter School Board of Directors.

Budget cuts underway at Foothill

Foothill College is in the midst of a three-year process to slash the school’s budget by $6.16 million, a reduction aimed at alleviating the Foothill-De Anza Community College District’s $17.6 million deficit by 2020.

A total of $1.75 million was cut from the 2018-2019 budget, and the district proposes to eliminate an additional $4.41 million from the 2019-2020 budget.

A graph from the 2017 Los Altos School District demographer’s report shows enrollment over the target capacity since 2010. Students enrolled at Bullis Charter School are included in the graph, because the district is legally obligated to provide facilities for them. The high, medium and low forecasts for enrollment growth in the next few years all show the total enrollment over target capacity.

The majority of the Los Altos School District’s 10th Site Advisory Task Force members said that placing Bullis Charter School on the 10th site is their first choice, as opposed to the site housing a neighborhood school, Egan Junior High School or a magnet school.

Formed last spring, the task force will determine the best potential use for land the district is in the process of acquiring and will make a recommendation to the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees. The district is currently negotiating with the sellers of the 9.65-acre parcel at the corner of California Street and Showers Drive in Mountain View.
