Camp Fire Updates
WEBSITE & EMAIL UPDATE
HomeTech Charter School’s Paradise campus survived the Camp Fire, but we understand that many of your homes did not make it. Our hearts are with you during this trying time.
Our top priorities are the safety, well-being and education of our students, and one of the most impactful ways we can ensure this is to get our students and teachers back together as soon as possible to begin the healing and rebuilding process. Please view our latest updates on our school calendar, below. Please be on the look out as your child’s teachers will begin reaching out to families the week of November 26 to discuss the latest updates and confirm attendance.

School will be closed for the regular holiday break from December 20th through January 4th and will resume on Monday, January 7th, 2019.
In an effort to start the rebuilding process as quickly as possible, the Paradise charter school community holds regular meetings with the Butte County Office of Education, Paradise and Chico Unified School Districts, third party vendors, and charter school champions from across the state to identify new locations for their schools. Living Hope Fellowship and Life Church are long-term interim locations for Achieve Charter Schools and HomeTech. CORE Butte Gymnasium is a temporary location for Paradise Charter Middle School and Children’s Community Charter Schools, but partners continue to meet and work around the clock to secure permanent sites for each school.
