LASD calls for 'pause' in litigation with Bullis

Original post made on Feb 15, 2013

The head of the Los Altos School District's board of has proposed halting all litigation between his district and Bullis Charter School, at least temporarily, so that the two organizations can focus on negotiations. The suggestion appears to be a non-starter with the charter school.

1) Lets find out where all this money Bullis has to try and bankrupt LASD is coming from.

2) An independent 3rd party MUST be allowed to investigate the records showing who got accepted to Bullis and ESPECIALLY who did not get accepted...and WHY.

These 2 things scare the pants off everyone who really knows hat Bullis is up to.

While they are investigating who was accepted to Bullis, they should also look at whether or not those families donated money to Bullis BEFORE their child was accepted. This should include mid-year acceptances as well.

Yep! We know parents in the Los Altos Hills who are in Palo Alto school district who were approached by BCS and told they could get a spot without a problem. We know other families who got in when there was supposedly no spot in a certain grade. They claim their financial records are readily available but try asking to see them and get a copy. No luck! How much are teachers paid? How much of her personal loan has Wanny (principal) paid back? How much do they spend on PR? It's a supposedly public school - show me where my money is going!

We need a FULL ACCOUNTING AUDIT of BCS and their admissions. No more of this BS.

I must admit to limited knowledge of how this situation arose but do agree that the charter school movement is overrated to say the least. I would like to know how one could help "detach" the Bullis operation from public funds so it can go its merry way with its own private funding - or fold. I hope other readers of this article will send sensible suggestions for me - and others.

Now that BCS has offered a compromise we suddenly find that isn't what any of the LASD supporters wanted. Apparently the real goal is to destroy BCS.

They didn't offer a compromise- just said they would live with the split IF they got more than LASD is required to provide.

Tones from Bullis certainly have calmed once people started demanding a full accounting of their financials and admissions. This info would either prove Bullis is on the "Up and up" or it would prove it is not.
So, lets step up to the plate Bullis. Open the books to a 3rd party accounting firm, let them report their finding and shut everyone up...I dare you.
