Stanford University and Palo Alto Unified School District (PAUSD) have reached a conditional agreement on community benefits that will be provided to the school district as part of a possible development agreement for the university’s proposed General Use Permit. The estimated value of the community benefits package is $138.4 million over 40 years. The agreement is the result of facilitated discussions between PAUSD and Stanford, and will expand the over century-long partnership between the two educational organizations.
