Measures E & U Overview

  • Measures E and U were approved by voters in November of 2014. Since that time, a great deal of work has been underway for the district's facility upgrade projects.

    How were the projects selected?

    In 2013, the District embarked on the process of creating a new Facilities Master Plan (FMP). The purpose was to identify facility needs within Tahoe Truckee Unified District that would support the educational goals of our students. The FMP identified over $236 million in facility needs. The facility needs to be included not only upgrading and expanding our schools but also the rehabilitation, repair, and replacement of our aging buildings. The Board and staff reviewed the FMP and prioritized the facilities needs to be identified to include only the most crucial projects. The Board identified over $114 million in priority projects in the Truckee Area and $62 million in the Lakeside Area.
