TTHS principal likely to be named

The selection of a new Tahoe-Truckee High School principal was expected to be finalized at last night’s Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District board meeting.

The new principal will replace Dennis LeBlanc, who retired last month after being the school’s principal for 10 years.

In the interim, Assistant Principal Mike Finney has been acting as principal.

According to TTUSD Superintendent Pat Gemma, a recommendation was made to board members last night for selecting a principal based on a unanimous decision that was made by a committee which consisted of teachers, administrators, parents, students and classified staff.

The school district began a multi-state search for applicants in December and received a total of 11 applications, Gemma said. Of three candidates interviewed, two were from out of the district and one was from within.

Other items on the agenda included:

– Approve resolution to establish criteria for order of certificated layoff and reemployment following layoff for employees with equal seniority.

– Approve resolution to designate district representatives for school facility program.

– Approve priority committee recommendations.

– Discuss district wide service learning program development.

– Discuss joint use agreement with Boys and Girls Club for new Kings Beach student activity center.

– Discuss ways to recognize school volunteers.

– Energy savings efforts.

– High school drug and alcohol disciplinary procedures.

– Measure C and Measure R oversight committee reports.

Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District meetings are the first Wednesday of every month unless announced otherwise. For information, call 582-7600.
