The Los Altos School District is aiming to finalize its acquisition of land for a 10th campus – contracts signed – by the end of 2018, according to Randy Kenyon, assistant superintendent for business services.
The district targeted the site at the corner of California Street and Showers Drive in June for purchase.
The Mountain View City Council voted 4-3 June 27 to allow the district to pursue acquisition of the land without restrictions on what would be built there.
In July, Mountain View city staff met with school district officials to determine what could go on the 10th site. They discussed what the city of Mountain View wants and what’s feasible for the district.
The district’s 10th Site Advisory Task Force plans to meet and develop a recommendation for the district board of trustees for what to put on the site. Task force members had hoped to have a recommendation for the board by June 15, but they have been unable to meet because of their vacation schedules. Once the task force presents a recommendation to the board, the board will make a final decision.
The first board of trustees meeting of the 2018-2019 school year is set for Aug. 13.
District officials are scheduled to present their plan for the site at the Oct. 16 Mountain View City Council meeting. They hope to finalize the city’s funding agreement then.
