Why was Measure AA placed on the ballot?
TTUSD has been gathering community feedback about the educational priorities for Tahoe Truckee schools for months. The top priorities for our schools we’ve heard include:
-Continuing to offer extensive honors and advanced placement classes in such subjects as physics, chemistry
-Continuing and upgrading vocational education and career technology programs so students acquire important job skills
-Preparing students for college and university
Measure AA would continue existing, voter-approved funding first established in 1989. If renewed, Measure AA would continue to fund programs that are underfunded by the state to ensure are provided with a well-rounded, high-quality education that includes science, art, technology, physical education, honors, and advanced placement classes, as well as job and college preparation.
How will renewing Measure AA help student success?
If renewed, Measure AA will maintain career technical and vocational education training programs.
Students would continue to have access to hands-on, interactive learning tools to acquire the real-world skills needed to compete for good paying jobs when they graduate.
Measure AA would continue funding to ensure science labs, school libraries, and classroom instruction keeps pace, and that our schools continue to teach students the skills they need to succeed and compete in a technologically advanced, highly competitive 21st-Century economy.
