A question arose at a Vacaville school board candidate forum about Buckingham Charter Magnet High School and its location in a commercial/industrial warehouse area on Bella Vista Road.
Does Buckingham, a dependent charter school that is part of the Vacaville School District, want to move to a traditional location? A place they can call their own?
Why yes, yes they do, said Jeff Erickson, principal of Buckingham. And it’s not a secret. They’ve made it known, he said. While they love their “paradise in a parking lot,” and have a good relationship with the district, they do not love having to use caution tape to section off a part of the parking lot for students to eat lunch, Erickson said.
