Tuesday forum explores facts behind LASD-BCS controversy

In the wake of recent high-profile discussions and the two-year facilities-use agreement between the Los Altos School District and Bullis Charter School, the Los Altos Women’s Caucus has organized a community forum addressing the facts behind the facilities debate.

“Understanding the Basics: LASD and BCS” is set for 7 p.m. Tuesday (June 4) in the Orchard Room at the Los Altos main library, 13 S. San Antonio Road. The forum will cover such factors as how each entity operates, laws governing their operations and the impact each has on the other.

Robin Abrams and Curtis Cole, members of the district’s Citizens’ Advisory Committee for Finance, will lead the program and present information “to start a community conversation grounded in facts,” organizers said.

Topics will include finances, student populations, an overview of the Proposition 39 process and requirements, governance and education code differences for charter schools.

Organizers also will solicit written questions from the audience to share with the Bullis Charter School and district boards and with the community.

Event co-sponsors include Los Altos Community Foundation, the Los Altos Library, the Los Altos Town Crier and the American Association of University Women.

Admission is free and open to all. To sign up for the forum, visit Attendees will receive any updates and a meeting reminder.
