Bullis Charter School requests a change of admissions preferences.

The Bullis Charter School board members voted to submit the following request to the Santa Clara County Board of Education. The SCCBOE unanimously approved this change of admissions preferences request at its October 6, 2021, board meeting.

BCS proposes that its admission preferences be changed to the following (the proposed new preferences are indicated in bold font):

  • Siblings of Bullis Charter School students who reside within the boundaries of the Los Altos School District.
  • Children who qualify for free or reduced priced meals and reside within the boundaries of the Los Altos School District, limited to 10% of the total openings at each grade level.
  • Children of BCS Staff members who reside within the boundaries of the Los Altos School District.
  • Children who reside within the boundaries of the Los Altos School District.
  • Siblings of Bullis Charter School students who reside outside the boundaries of the Los Altos School District but with California.
  • Children of BCS staff members who reside outside the boundaries of the Los Altos School District but within California.
  • Children who qualify for free or reduced priced meals who reside outside the boundaries of the Los Altos School District but within California.
  • All other applicants who reside within California. 

BCS is requesting approval of these modifications so they may take effect for the 2022-23 Open Enrollment period, which begins November 2, 2021.
