Athletic fees on LTUSD meeting agenda

William Ferchland

A discussion on athletic fees for next school year is one of the highlights of a long agenda for the Lake Tahoe Unified School District Board of Education.

Participation fees for the middle and high schools will be raised next year to help counter revenue loss and higher costs in the district.

High school football is expected to be the most expensive. Athletes for sports of all seasons will be charged more than they paid this year.

A report on the Young Parents Program and alternative education will be presented by Susan Baker and Chris Sowers. Statistical growth and expectations for the future will be provided.

Other agenda items include:

– First reading of additions, deletions and revisions to board policy.

– A superintendent’s report that includes future planning, information on needed logistical transitions and action plans.

– A certificate recognizing Bijou Community School teacher Niall McGuinness for participation in the Fulbright Program.

– Approval of a new speech and debate course at South Tahoe High School.

The board will review the administrative contracts of Superintendent Diane Scheerhorn, Assistant Superintendent Barbara Davis, Human Resources Director Beth Delacour and the chief financial officer in closed session.

The meeting will begin tonight at 6 at the district office. Prior to the main meeting, the board will have lunch with 20 seniors at South Tahoe High School to discuss their district experience.

The lunch begins at 11:15 a.m. and is open to the public.
