LASD: No decision on 10th site

The Los Altos School District Board of Trustees is still pursuing the acquisition of a 10th school site in Mountain View, but trustees have yet to decide what type of school would be placed on the new campus.

District officials hope the city of Mountain View will kick in $23 million to fund the project in exchange for use of the site after hours, but council members have said they don’t want to move forward with a funding commitment until the district fleshes out its plans for the site.

However, district officials don’t want to make a final decision about what will go on the site until the purchase has been finalized. Options include designating the site for Bullis Charter School or a neighborhood school.

At a brief board meeting last week with only three of the five trustees present, Jessica Speiser, Bryan Johnson and Vladimir Ivanovic agreed that the school would “serve” the neighborhood, but they were careful to steer clear of designating it a neighborhood school. No vote was held.

The next district board meeting is scheduled Monday. The Mountain View City Council is set to discuss the 10th site at its meeting Tuesday.
