LASD solicits teacher housing

The Los Altos School District, in partnership with Los Altos Community Foundation, is compiling an electronic bulletin board connecting district teachers to local residents with available rental housing. The bulletin board will serve both veteran teachers and new hires searching for affordable housing near district schools.

The search for housing will include apartments, in-law units and suites with their own entrances that are available beginning in July or August.
