School brief

Mediation begins for Bullis, LASD

Officials and lawyers representing Bullis Charter School and the Los Altos School District began talks Tuesday in an attempt to resolve "differences and the long-standing dispute over BCS Facilities allocation," without further legal action, according to a press release from the school district.

The two educational organizations have selected JAMS — "the largest private alternative dispute resolution provider in the world," according to its website — to mediate.

Richard J. McAdams, a former justice on California's Sixth District Court of Appeal with 34 years of judicial experience, will serve as the arbitrator.

"McAdams will attempt to have both sides compromise on a solution that meets all parties' interests," the statement said.

Members from both the LASD and Bullis boards would not comment on the mediation talks, as the discussions are confidential.
