Become a Friend of Education today!
The Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation, which supports the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD), is hoping you will become an annual “Friend of Education.”
Each year the Foundation provides much needed support to our public schools in the form of educational grants, monetary teacher awards and training. During the 2013-14 academic year, the Foundation funded nearly $300,000 to programs and classrooms of TTUSD. Many classroom enhancements including supplemental math and reading tools, state of the art science equipment as well as pilot programs such as iLearn – where students are using iPods in the classroom to improve reading fluency - are funded by Excellence in Education. We are proud to report the Foundation has funded over $2.5 million in grants and resources to TTUSD since its inception. This is all thanks to the support from our “Friends of Education."
The Foundation recently spearheaded Tahoe Truckee Reads, a community effort to improve grade level literacy in our region. As a result of this campaign, Tahoe-Truckee received the 2012 All-America City award from the National Civic League based on our ambitious plan to ensure that more children are reading at grade level by the end of third grade. We are ecstatic with this new designation and the partnership with the school district and other community organizations as we implement the strategies and plan for the future.
Please enroll today at a level that is meaningful to you and make a difference in the quality of education our community provides its children!
