OLYMPIC VALLEY, Calif. — The Tahoe Truckee Unified School District will host its first-ever “State of the District” event for parents to learn about the local public education system on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at the Village at Squaw Valley.

The theme, according to an email from the district, is “Celebrating What’s Right with this World and Tahoe Truckee.”

Following a two-song performance from the Glenshire Elementary School chorus, there will be a presentation on the district’s vision, as well as an overview of TTUSD’s educational, student and business services divisions.

There will also be a video created by the district that introduces each campus it oversees, and one student from each school will present what they love about their school.

Alder Creek Middle School’s jazz band will perform as the presentations conclude, and visitors are encouraged to walk around the room to visit different tables with information.

The stations will include information on many things, including upcoming projects funded by measures E and U, transportation, food services, technology, and English-learner services, to name a few.

District Superintendent Dr. Robert Leri will also be on hand to answer questions.

The event — which was originally scheduled for Jan. 11 but was postponed due to snow storms — will take place in the Palisades Ballroom at the Village at Squaw Valley, located at 1750 Village East Rd. in Olympic Valley.
