Executive Director's Message

Between COVID-19, widespread wildfires, and power outages, the start of the 2020-2021 school year has brought significant challenges to our Plumas County communities. We at Plumas Charter School are proud to bring our core values of respect, compassion, responsiveness, and accountability to the forefront in serving our students and families in even the most difficult of times! This year, we have developed a hybrid educational program that combines on-site classes, distance learning, and independent study (read more here). As always, I offer immense appreciation to our teachers and staff, who unite behind our mission to offer personalized education while also protecting our students, families, employees, and communities. To our families: thank you for choosing PCS and for being active participants in your child's education. Your partnership and trust are held in great esteem. Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
