You’re Invited! Community Engagement Process for Our Local Schools

The Los Altos School District (LASD) has initiated a Community Engagement Process to involve the public in formulating a long term facilities plan to house Bullis Charter School (BCS) and ensure a top quality education for all children.

Whether or not you have children currently attending our schools, LASD values your perspective and welcomes your participation in a process to envision the future of education in our neighborhoods.

Please join us for one of the charrettes
(Each charrette will have the same format, so you only need to attend one)

Wednesday, September 25, 6:30-8:30pm
Blach Intermediate School Multipurpose Room
1120 Covington Rd.

OR

Saturday, October 5, 9:30-11:30 am
Egan Junior High School Multipurpose Room
100 W. Portola Ave.

As a participant in the upcoming charrettes, you will work in a small group to review previously considered ideas and help generate new ideas for the community to discuss and consider. You will have a chance to evaluate these ideas at subsequent workshops in November. Our process consultant, MIG, will then organize and summarize the results, which will be presented to the LASD Board in January.

For more information visit LASD’s Community Engagement webpage. Please email [email protected] with any questions.

Senior Transportation in Santa Clara County

Santa Clara County is currently conducting a transportation needs assessment focused on a few key populations which currently receive some transportation services or support. The needs assessment will be used to guide and improve future service and improvements to the transportation services that the County provides and support (for example, when, to whom, and how the County provides bus passes or taxi vouchers).

The 5-minute survey is available in English, Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese at: tinyURL.com/TransportationSCC


Immigrant Resources Needs and Assets Survey - How do immigrants experience Mountain View?
