TAHOE TRUCKEE UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT (TTUSD) ANNOUNCES DISCONTINUATION OF THE TAHOE TRUCKEE COMMUNITY ADULT SCHOOL

TRUCKEE, Calif. (December 1, 2023) - In a strategic move aimed at optimizing resources and ensuring a more impactful educational experience for its primary student body, the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District (TTUSD) has made the decision to discontinue its Tahoe Truckee Community Adult School effective at the start of the 2024/2025 school year. This decision is rooted in the district's commitment to providing effective and meaningful education for all students, enabling them to reach their full potential. 

"Our primary focus is on delivering the best educational experience for our Early Learning through 12th-grade students. This decision allows us to concentrate efforts where resources will have a broader impact," said Superintendent Kramer. "While our adult education program at TTUSD is concluding, we recognize and deeply appreciate the enduring value of adult education. It’s a powerful catalyst for empowerment, providing avenues for personal development and enhancing the fabric of our community."

Opportunities through alternate educational resources remain available for Truckee/North Tahoe community members seeking adult education. The Truckee Library Adult Literacy and ESL Program will continue to offer free GED course support, tutoring, ESL courses, and ESL tutoring. Additionally, numerous in-person instruction and testing opportunities are available through neighboring institutions involved in the Sierra Joint Consortium, including the Placer School for Adults and the Roseville Adult School. These institutions provide online and in-person high school diploma completion and GED support classes, along with a range of Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways that were not available in the TTUSD adult education program. These pathways serve as excellent opportunities for practical learning with a direct route into the workforce. 

“We are honored to have served our community’s adult education students throughout the past ten years,” said Superintendent Kramer. “Those students showed tremendous motivation and exemplified a dedication to personal and professional growth. Thank you for letting us be a part of your journey.”
