Bullis Charter School's board chairman raised the possibility of litigation this week in a letter to parents describing his board's objections to a draft of a long-term agreement with the Los Altos School District.
The charter school and the district are in negotiations over a long-term facilities agreement for the charter school, a development that would possibly end eight years of legal action.
"Unfortunately, the District has sent us (and circulated publicly) a draft written agreement without our input that does not fairly articulate the deal to which we agreed," wrote Ken Moore in a letter to Bullis parents.
"In a last ditch effort to avoid further litigation, we have highlighted some of the problems with the draft agreement and are discussing them with the District."
In a separate document, Moore highlighted ten top objections to the proposal that the school district placed on its website Monday, in response to anxious district parents who had asked for transparency in any agreement being hammered out.
Many of the objections were to ideas that parents had given the district in hopes of easing the disruption of a hastily crafted deal, one that had come about over two months' time. While Moore listed ten, his letter to Bullis parents said there were more.
Patch has attached a copy of the proposal, the charter school's letter and a presentation of the framework of the tentative agreement that was made public May 7.
Patch will highlight the objections on this article later.
