According to the release, Bullis will be provided one of four school sites — Almond, Gardner Bullis, Santa Rita or Covington. If the measure is approved, the district will build a new campus for the students that are displaced when Bullis gets its campus. While the new school is being built, displaced students will be spread throughout the district's schools.
If the measure is not approved, Bullis would have to wait another year before getting one of the district's campuses. In this scenario, "LASD would likely consolidate its students in existing facilities while seeking passage of a new bond measure in 2014," the statement said. It is not clear whether Bullis would be obligated to support that second bond measure.
Bullis has agreed to stay on its current site at Egan Junior High School until one of the two scenarios unfolds.
Many of the details are yet to be worked out, but both organizations exchanged amicable words in the joint press release, a change of pace from the heated rhetoric that's marked the contentious legal wrangling over campus facilities for the charter school.
