Save Egan and Our Los Altos Community
0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!
Recently the Bullis Charter School (BCS) Board has submitted a Prop 39 request to the Los Altos School District (LASD) to close our neighborhood middle school, Egan Junior High School, so that BCS can have exclusive use of that site.
Egan has been serving the LASD community for over 50 years. It has been consistently ranked as one of the top junior highs in the state of California and has been recognized both locally and nationally. Egan currently serves approximately 600 local students.
As a parent of children in our neighborhood public school, I know firsthand that the LASD schools are academically excellent and a critical hub of our community. We chose to live in Los Altos and to attend LASD neighborhood public schools because we envision our children walking and biking to school with their friends on the street and being an active contributor to our community through the nearby schools. We are disheartened to hear that that dream may be taken away from us and hundreds of other children.
Please help us send a message to the school boards that they cannot take away what would be our children's future school and take away our community. Please sign this petition:
- If you want to save Egan and send a message to the LASD and BCS boards that closing Egan is unacceptable.
- If you don't agree with closing a high-performing public neighborhood school that is a hub of our Los Altos community and school to 600 children.
- If you want to see BCS and LASD Boards work collaboratively to solve facilities needs for both BCS and LASD--but not at the expense of one group of people entirely and not through years of lawsuits. In this winner-take-all mentality, no one wins and all our children lose.

Please do not donate to the Promote Petition option that Change.org is going to ask you to do. The money goes to advertise the petition on platform and doesn’t go to this cause. I have not set up fundraising for this petition. If you've donated and want your money reimbursed, please email their help center.
I know it's a contentious issue, and we all have strong feelings. Keep your comments on topic and please remember that everyone--regardless of their opinion on this--is a part of our Los Altos community.
