Egan students deserve better

I respectfully disagree with the April 10 editorial (“Bombshell deal just might work”) and Nancy Bremeau’s letter (“LASD scores an ‘A’ for 10th-site plan”) concerning the deal to give the whole of the Egan Junior High School campus to Bullis Charter School and move Egan to a new site.

I grew up in the Los Altos School District and graduated from Egan in 1994. At that time we had six elementary schools, Bullis Charter School did not exist and there were 351 students at Egan. If my counting is accurate, it means 351 Egan students enjoyed an entire 18.8-acre campus to themselves.

Bullis Charter School: Why no outrage?

Outrage abounds. Many are asking why the Los Altos School District camp would negotiate a deal that seemingly surrenders a “jewel” to Bullis Charter School when the charter school apparently gives up nothing.

Let me tell you why I am celebrating. This deal is a long time in the making. As a Bullis Charter School parent, I am excited to consolidate our program onto one site. We will no longer spend time negotiating the use of a gym, field or lab, and all of us can go back to supporting our students in their classrooms. No more Proposition 39, threats of lawsuits or brutal neighbor-to-neighbor conflict.

LASD scores an ‘A’ for 10th-site plan

Following is an open letter to the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees.

As a parent whose child just completed eight years in the Los Altos School District, including two years at Egan Junior High School, I applaud your decision to site Egan at the new 10th site in the north of El Camino Real area.
