LASD schedules two meetings for community input

Los Altos School District administrators and board trustees have scheduled two meetings to solicit community input on their ongoing negotiations with Bullis Charter School over facilities.

Under Proposition 39, the school district is required annually to provide “reasonably equivalent” facilities for in-district charter school students. Currently Bullis Charter School students share space with district students at Egan Junior High and Blach Intermediate schools.

The district has scheduled meetings 7 p.m. Monday and Dec. 3 to gather feedback from the community on the 2013-2014 facilities offer to the charter school. The meetings will take place in Covington School’s multipurpose room, 201 Covington Ave.

Bullis Charter School officials are scheduled to release their enrollment projections by Thursday – in time for the first community meeting.

Mark Goines, president of the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees, outlined a working agenda for Monday’s meeting that includes a district presentation on the charter school’s enrollment numbers, presentations from charter school board members, a presentation on “broad-brush” facilities scenarios and public input.

At the Dec. 3 meeting, the district board plans to present additional facilities possibilities based on community input and continue to solicit feedback for its preliminary offer to the charter school, due by Feb. 1.
