TAHOE CITY, Calif. — At a special Board of Education meeting last week, the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Board of Trustees unanimously appointed Chad Lindeen as principal of North Tahoe School.

Lindeen replaces Teresa Rensch, who recently joined the Konocti Unified School District as Director of Curriculum & Instruction.

Following Rensch’s resignation in June, the district implemented a thorough recruitment process.

Input was solicited from staff, parents and the community as to the attributes they would like to see in a new principal, through an online survey and a community meeting.

A rigorous interview process took place and parents, staff members and district leadership participated.

Staff, students, and parents also participated in a “meet and greet” as part of the process.

“We are excited to have Chad join our leadership team,” said Rob Leri, TTUSD superintendent. “His extensive experience at the middle school level as both an educator and administrator will be an asset to the District and to North Tahoe School.”

Lindeen comes to the district with an extensive background in education, specifically at the middle school level.

He was most recently with the Washoe County School District as principal at the Fred W. Traner Middle School.

His educational preparation includes: a Masters of Arts in Education from Michigan State University; a Bachelor of Arts from Hamline University; a Post-Baccalaureate in Teaching from Hamline University; and completion of a School Administration and Superintendent Licensure Program at Portland State University.

He lives in Truckee with his wife and three children, all students who attend Tahoe Truckee Unified schools.
