A solution to the crowded schools problem
Original post made by Parent, Another Palo Alto neighborhood, on May 14, 2007
Open Garland but move Ohlone there.
Ohlone site becomes neighborhood school taking residents from the area between Oregon and Embarcadero (they will still have to cross a major artery - just a different one) and residents north of Colorado. Redraw the boundaries in the North to even out the size of the schools now that a chunk from the North is at Ohlone site.
This would ease the crowding at the three North schools and also at Palo Verde which will be getting more students from new housing.
Ohlone would still be a commuter, choice school with all its programs, just at a different site.
MI could go to Greendell when JCC leaves either as choice or charter.
