Time for BCS to choose: New school or two sites
Your coverage of the Los Altos School District’s 10th site effort gives the incorrect impression that only opponents have chimed in.
At the Dec. 11 meeting at which the decision to move forward with the effort was made, a majority of those speaking voiced support.
The plan would leverage a very substantial financial commitment from the city of Mountain View to provide a school and park in a neighborhood that needs them. We can’t keep building housing without providing a place for kids to play and go to school.
For the 10 years I’ve had kids in the local schools, our community has been locked in a dispute between Bullis Charter School and the school district. It’s finally time to resolve that dispute.
The district should offer Bullis Charter School the option to build out the new site with their involvement or accept that they will be housed in permanent facilities on two existing district sites shared with neighborhood schools.
Our neighborhood schools unite and connect us with our neighbors through a shared parenting and school experience that spans generations. We should provide permanent facilities for the charter school without closing any neighborhood school, which means two sites or the new site. It’s time for Bullis Charter School to choose.
