The Prop 39 law is being upheld, one that requires public facilities be shared equally with all public school student in the district attendance area. To be clear, BCS is not asking that our students be treated better than any other LASD student. We just want them to have the same access to facilities and not be penalized for choosing to attend the charter school.

The BCS community is committed to finding a long-term solution to our facilities issues with a minimum of disruption to the wider Los Altos School District but ultimately, any solution will be crafted and implemented by the LASD Trustees.

We would ask that disinformation and uncivil tones being propagated cease and that real solutions that are fair to all students have an opportunity to prevail in the discussion.

On a personal note, we chose the charter school because of the exciting and innovative curriculum and we choose to stay at the charter school because of the outstanding staff that inspires our child to pursue her passions.
