Parents of Bullis Charter School Stage Protest at School District Offices in Response to Its Teachers Being Locked Out

District Changes Locks Preventing Teachers from Accessing Classrooms

LOS ALTOS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--More than 20 parents from Bullis Charter School (BCS) representing each grade level (K-8) staged a peaceful protest outside the District offices Thursday morning to express their outrage and frustration over the Los Altos School District's (LASD) decision to lock teachers out of their classrooms just days away from the start of the school year.

BCS failed to sign the facilities usage agreement they were given in April, so they don't get access. That's like refusing to sign a lease on an apartment you are moving into. The landlord just won't give you a key.

BCS is a horrible blight on the community and they should have their charter revoked at the earliest opportunity.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
