TTUSD holds groundbreaking on $62 million Measure E projects

Staff report

On June 8, the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District held a Measure E Groundbreaking Ceremony at Tahoe Lake Elementary School in Tahoe City.

TTUSD Superintendent Rob Leri, TTUSD Board of Education directors and Placer County Supervisor Jennifer Montgomery were among attendees, and many school students participated in the event.

In 2014, voters living within the lakeside portion of TTUSD approved Measure E, which authorized $62 million in capital upgrade bonds for lakeside school campuses and projects.

New construction plans at Tahoe Lake include replacing modular classroom buildings, adding new classrooms, and modernizing the existing building with a bevy of safety and technology improvements, among others.

Other projects include upgrades at Kings Beach Elementary and North Tahoe School and North Tahoe High, among others.
