BCS Impact at Egan (PTA letter)

I've spent a lot of time over the past several months speaking with leaders from BCS about their needs, and what they'd like to get from the district to run their program.  As we have those discussions, I think it's also important to understand that there are impacts on both sides of the ledger for any request.  Any request for "more access" from one side means "less access" for another group.

The Board recently received a letter from the Egan PTA, expressing their concerns about an increased sharing arrangement with BCS.  They've asked for a number of accomodations to help lessen the impact on the Egan program from the increased (and ever growing) footprint of BCS on the Egan campus. 

I know that some of these items have already been discussed (in point of fact, some of them were in motion several months ago).  The Board hasn't discussed every single item in the letter, and I'm not committing one way or the other right now.  I'm simply sharing this letter so that folks are aware of the concerns of the Egan PTA leadership.  Full letter is here.
