Santa Clara County to start looking for teacher housing sites in West Valley

Acknowledging a lack of housing affordable to teachers and school employees, the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors voted last week to begin the process of developing teacher housing in the West Valley, the Bay Area News Group reported.

The county will identify possible project sites in the broader West Valley area, according to BANG. That includes the Fremont Union High School District, which serves Cupertino, Sunnyvale and parts of Saratoga and San Jose.

The West Valley proposal follows a similar proposal in Palo Alto, which seeks to provide 110 apartments for teachers and staff who work at schools in Santa Clara and San Mateo counties.
