Parents wanted a choice in public education. Ten sets of parents met, loaned the school $2500 and hired an attorney. The Charter document was written in 30 days. Then the group gathered the necessary signatures and turned it into the local District. The local school District reviewed the petition and denied us. We appealed to the County Board of Education and they approved the Charter for 5 years.  In February 2016 we presented our Charter Renewal to the Glenn County Office of Education and we were approved for another five year term.

Charter schools are schools of choice: parents select the school their child attends. Families and community members are welcomed in charter schools and are treated as partners in their child's education. Charter schools are free to attend and are public schools.
