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.
