TTUSD class enrollment close to expectations

Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District administrators and staff are still holding their breath while they wait to see if they meet their budgeted enrollment of 4,935 students.

As of press time Wednesday, the district’s enrollment was close to 4,900, according to Monty Folsom, director of financial services for the district.

“Our enrollment is close to what we projected but not exactly,” Folsom said of the enrollment counts for the first two days of school.

The most recent enrollment counts for each school site were not yet available.

“In the first week of school we tend to get enrollment in every day of the week – it changes daily,” Folsom said. “It [enrollment] most likely won’t solidify until Tuesday of next week.”

As of Wednesday, enrollment surpassed projections at Kings Beach Elementary, Sierra Mountain Middle School, North Tahoe High School, North Tahoe Middle School and Donner Trail Elementary School.

Enrollment was below the district’s projection at Tahoe Lake Elementary, Rideout Elementary, Truckee Elementary and Glenshire Elementary.

At Tahoe-Truckee High School, enrollment was below the projection, but up from last year, said Folsom.

District staff met on Wednesday afternoon to discuss staffing at the various schools and how it aligns with enrollment.

The district will meet with the Fiscal Review Committee today at 4 p.m. to discuss whether additional budget cuts need to be made.

At this point, said Folsom, the district won’t have to make any major cuts.

The meeting will be held at the district office in Truckee and is open to the public.
