Community Schools

Four of our LTUSD schools have been selected to receive the California Community Schools Partnership Program (CCSPP) Implementation Grant:  Sierra House Elementary School, Tahoe Valley Elementary School, Bijou Community School, and Mt. Tallac High School.  A Community School is an evidence-based school transformation model that has a whole-child and family mindset to remove barriers to learning, emotional and physical wellness, and on-time graduation. Common barriers are absences from school, housing instability, mental health challenges, and lack of family and community partnerships.  The framework builds on the Four Pillars of a Community School to promote the resilience of the community and offers integrated support services, shared leadership with youth, staff, and families, increasing family engagement, and extended learning opportunities.
