Executive Director's Message

The 2019-2020 school year is off to a great start for Plumas Charter School! As always, I offer immense appreciation to our teachers and staff, who unite behind our mission to offer personalized education with respect, compassion, responsiveness, and accountability. 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. The big projects for the school this year are to continue to pursue options for a dedicated facility in Quincy, and to complete our second accreditation cycle through the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. I look forward to sharing our progress! This year, our main administrative offices have moved to 20 Crescent St. in Quincy; you can find me, along with the office manager and registrar, there. (Enter from the Theatre Square parking lot, which also serves our 546 Lawrence St. location.) Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns!
