On Monday, December 3, 2018, Paradise charter schools resumed classes after the deadly Camp Fire displaced all six charter schools in the area, two of which were completely destroyed and one of which was severely damaged. Charter schools are located in interim facilities in Chico until they can return to Paradise.

About California's Charter Schools
California's charter schools are public schools built to put the needs of students first. Public, free, and open to all, charter schools are a growing and valuable part of our public education system. They offer a different approach -- one that is as unique as the kids they serve, one that puts kids above bureaucracy, and one that gives passionate teachers the flexibility to create dynamic lesson plans tailored to kids' individual needs. As a result, charter schools send more kids to college and are preparing more kids for the jobs of tomorrow. Learn more here.
