Vocational education could go green

Lake Tahoe Unified School District’s master plan has a green component with the proposed South Tahoe High School Green Academy project.

The academy would focus on teaching students trades in green construction, auto mechanics and technology. The proposal includes a new three-story building, an area for construction workshops and covered parking for four vehicles.

The project will cost $12 million, with $6 million coming from matching-fund grants.

Funding for the academy ” along with other master-plan projects ” would come through the passage of Measure A on the June ballot. Measure A funds then would be matched by the grant money.

If two-thirds of voters approve Measure A, a property assessment would tax $38.70 per $100,000 of the assessed value of a property. It would provide $87 million to the district over 35 years, according to the language of the resolution.
