TRUCKEE, Calif. — On March 11, Tahoe Truckee Unified School District Superintendent Rob Leri was named the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 2 Superintendent of the Year.

ACSA, the largest umbrella organization for school leaders in the United States, annually recognizes outstanding administrators for “their leadership skills, professionalism, creativity, innovation, and commitment to a quality education.”

This award is the second round of awards for Dr. Leri. A few weeks before, he was named Placer County Superintendent of the Year.

TTUSD is part of ACSA’s Region 2 which includes 10 counties: Placer County, El Dorado County, Nevada County, Sierra County, Plumas County, Butte County, Yuba County, Sutter County, Colusa County and Glenn County.

Leri, along with all of other county winners from our region, moved on to the next round of awards, held in Lincoln this past Friday. All regional winners move on to a state level competition.

“Dr. Leri has been the superintendent of the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District for the past four years and has made a tremendous impact on the Tahoe Truckee community during this time,” TTUSD Board President Kim Szczurek shared. “There are over 16 superintendents just in Placer County, and to be named the County and Region 2 Superintendent of the Year is a testament to Rob’s outstanding leadership, collaboration, accessibility, and always putting students first.”

This award wasn’t the only one ACSA presented to TTUSD. The district’s Director of Technology and Information Services, Ed Hilton, was named ACSA’s Region 2 Technology Administrator of the Year as well.

Hilton has been with the district for over 10 years, beginning his career as a teacher. His department was formed just over a year and a half ago because of the importance technology has in the education of students.

In that short time, Hilton and his team have made a tremendous impact on teaching and learning, communication, and district-wide safety.

“I am extremely proud of all our district has accomplished over the past several years,” stated Leri. “We have an incredible team committed to the youth in our community and these awards represent all the amazing work underway for our scholars.”
