Tahoe Truckee Unified School District board to adopt two-year school calendar March 7

Special to the Sun

TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. and#8212; At the Feb. 15 board meeting, Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) trustees reviewed several school calendar scenarios for start dates, end dates, and vacations.

Last spring, TTUSD sought public input through a school calendar survey. According to Steve Dickinson, assistant superintendent of finance, results showed it was fairly unanimous five days for Thanksgiving was not preferred, and while it was split down the middle regarding whether to have a full week for Ski Skate Week, the message was clear everyone wants a week off for Spring Break.

and#8220;Folks also indicated that it would be helpful to know start and end days further in advance for planning purposes, especially as it pertains to the Labor Day holiday,and#8221; Dickinson explained, adding that with this in mind, administrators created calendar scenarios for both 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 to be considered by the trustees.

Full survey results can be viewed online at http://www.ttusd.org/calendarsurveyresults.

The board will vote to adopt calendars at the next board meeting, Wednesday, March 7, in the TTUSD Board Room at the district offices in Truckee, the public portion of which starts at 5:30 p.m.
