CA Ed Code Section 11969.2(d) states in part:
...the charter school's in-district students must be given the same consideration as students in the district-run schools, subject to the requirement that the facilities provided to the charter school must be contiguous.
Students in district-run schools are given a single, contiguous site for their elementary school, and then a second contiguous site that is physcially separated from the first for middle school. In order for charter school students to receive the same consideration, they must be given the same configuration.
If the LASD board were to give BCS a single site for all their students K-8, then charter students wouldn't be given the same consideration as in-district students. This would expose LASD to another lawsuit brought by BCS. Thus, I commend the LASD board on following the letter of the law in their facilities offer to BCS to minimize their legal exposure.
