Tahoe Truckee Unified School District receives national recognition for sustainability efforts

The U.S. Department of Education announced that Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) is a 2018 Green Ribbon School District Sustainability Awardee. TTUSD is one of only six school districts in the United States, and the only school district in California to receive this prestigious national recognition for their sustainability efforts.

The U.S. Department of Education recognized Tahoe Truckee for their innovative efforts to reduce environmental impact and utility costs, improve health and wellness of schools, students, and staff, and ensure effective sustainability education.

Robert Leri, TTUSD’s Superintendent Chief Learning Officer, shared, “I am extremely proud that our district is leading the way in resource conservation and environmental literacy. It’s truly a team effort, and we could not have accomplished what we have so far without our amazing community partners.”

In April, TTUSD was named a California Green Ribbon School District and earned the “2018 Green Achiever” award, the highest honor in the California Green Ribbon Schools recognition program.

“We plan to build on our accomplishments and will continue to model environmental stewardship in the classroom and throughout our district,” stated Leri.
