With the closure of a school, the community rallied together along with a non-profit to create the Tahoe Learning Community. The highlights of this article are below, and you can read the full article by clicking here.
The Golden Valley Tahoe School was facing a $370,000 deficit and the possibility of the school closing if they didn’t do something to lower the deficit. Unfortunately, they couldn’t do anything in time and the school closed at the end of this school year.
“For me, closing any school is seen as a failure. There’s no way around it… this is a huge and gut-wrenching decision.” Jennifer Huetter, Board Member
The Tahoe Learning Community
After the closing of the school, the parents rallied together to figure out what to do next. With the help of a non-profit, Friends of Tahoe Truckee Waldorf, they were able to open the Tahoe Learning Community. Friends of Tahoe Truckee Waldorf is a non-profit that prides itself on growth and access to Waldorf education and programming in the Tahoe Truckee area. The TLC is the newest offering in the evolution of the nonprofit’s seven-year legacy in the Tahoe Waldorf community. (Source)
Tahoe Learning Community currently serves homeschooling families and students from transitional kindergarten level through sixth grade. TLC convenes at the 40-acre campus at Haskatasun on Union Mills Road, and also at Sierra College’s Truckee Campus. The Tahoe Learning Community is accepting new families for the 2022-2023 school year. (Source)
