LTCC gets big federal grant

Lake Tahoe Community College will receive a $1.75 million, five-year federal grant.

Superintendent and President Guy F. Lease said the money will be used to target math and English instructional improvements and to provide faculty with access to the latest teaching and learning techniques.

The money also will be used in programs that support students who are having difficulty with classes, to enhance the fund-raising capacity of the Lake Tahoe Community College Foundation, and to upgrade student registration and class files to provide computerized tracking of graduation requirements.

Federal dollars will expand English as a Second Language class offerings, support the new Language Learning Center and Gateway Math Center.

Part of the college wish list includes expansion of technology within classrooms.

The grant will match foundation fund raising on a two-to-one basis. The foundation goal is $115,000, which would mean a total of $345,000 would be available to the college.

Board of Trustees President Ken Rollston said the grant means “students can expect significant changes at the college over the next five years.”

Those changes, he added, will help students prepare “to enter the workforce or to continue on to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.”
