Original post made on Jun 16, 2007

Both of the remaining two options for LASD's boundary changes would force 100 or more Mountain View students to change schools.

The article should reflect the impact on ALL Mountain View neighborhoods. Let it be noted that Scenario 2.3 also displaces 60-70 Mountain View children (in the Hollingworth/Gilmore area) from their current Almond school to Springer.

" Another Mountain View community located in the Hollingsworth and Gilmore Drive neighborhoods would be affected by scenario 2.3, which would move approximately 60 students from Almond to Springer.

Scenario L.1, however, would keep the Hollingsworth and Gilmore Drive communities at Almond.

Elizabeth Gardner, a resident of the Hollingsworth to Gilmore Drive community and a member of the neighborhood parent committee, said scenario L.1 is preferable because it prevents parants from having to drive their children to school when currently they can walk to Almond less than a mile away.

"Shifting dozens and dozens of students from walking and biking to driving is no good for kids, or schools, or for the whole community," Gardner said."

Here is what the original article stated on behalf of Hollingsworth to Gilmore. They weren't omitted. What comes up here is truncated.

Correct, we were not omitted (in the longer article), just truncated in the summary.

But now we're officially displaced and motorized per LASD Board decision last night.

Yeah, sadly, a club none of us wish to belong to, I'm afraid, yet we both do.
