update on CWC co-location request for 2017/18t

Hello everyone! I know it has been a long time since I have posted, but people are still checking this blog and contacting me about what is going on with the CWC co-location request for for next school year, 2017/18.

Well, here's what we know so far.  In November 2016, CWC requested co-location space in the west Los Angeles and suggested Webster Middle School with alternate sites including Richland Ave ES, Palms MS, Charnock Road ES, Clover ES, and Mar Vista ES, among others.

    February 1, 2017, LASUD gave CWC a preliminary offer of space at Grand View, Palms and Short Elementary Schools.
    March 1, 2017 CWC responded to the preliminary proposal with a counter offer of space at Palms and Short ES. As for Grand View, CWC states "Due to the hostility from the Grand View community and the public opposition to CWC3’s location there, CWC3 does not wish to be located there."
    On or before April 1, 2017, the district will issue a final offer. The final offer is non-negotiable and CWC will either have to accept the offer in full by May 1 or decline it all.

    What will CWC do now that both Palm and Short are also expressing open "hostility" to a CWC co-location?
