Menlo Park School District Expansion- Idea Proposed

Original post made by Curious, Menlo Park: Fair Oaks, on Nov 3, 2006

Since the school district is in the process of considering how to use bond money and increase school sizes- and it seems like they will need more money than they are receiving- has anyone posed the thought of adopting unincorporated Menlo Park (namely the N. Fair Oaks neighborhood) to the district? Our kids would come together in High School at MA anyway.

I think the argument against annexing any of the remaining unincorporated areas of Menlo Park is that the tax base it would bring would not support the services the city would be required to deliver.

I wonder how that plays out for the other unincorporated neighborhoods of MP west of Alameda de las Pulgas since they attend Las Lomitas as opposed to Redwood City Schools.
