This is the type of Education program that MVLA district sometimes seems to short IMO - (sorry Barry). It has almost zero effect on the Los Altos side of the district - but it has major direct effects on the future educational opportunities of the large SED (= poor and less educated) families from Mountain View. It will be interesting to learn how many MVLA Board members lifted a finger (or a pen to write or a hand to telephone) to get the newest Shoreline District money. [the public record will show I've been trying to get them personally involved with the MV council over several years]. But this is just another aspect of the need for MV citizens to fight to get FULL education taxes from Shoreline, not the temporary 1/3.
