School district warns of scam

Lake Tahoe Unified School District issued a statement stating the 2013 ‘California School Guide’ is not affiliated with or recommended by the district.

The school guide is developed and distributed by School Publishing, an independent publisher located in Texas.

LTUSD Spokeswoman Angie Keil wrote in an email that local contractors may have received phone calls or invoices from the group. The publisher solicits companies that have done business with a school district to purchase an advertisement in the guide. The company claims that “the guide is a high-quality online publication that provides a valuable resource to school districts and educational agencies,” however, LTUSD cannot to confirm receipt of the publication either in print or online, now or at any time in the past, Keil wrote.

Building contractors may not be fully aware of what they are agreeing to, as the District’s name is discussed in the verbal and printed communication. Invoices received by contractors not only include a confirmation number and an amount due, but specifically name the Lake Tahoe Unified School District, according to the email.

Please contact LTUSD at 541-2850 Ext. 225 if you have any questions or email: info@ltusd.org.
