CCCS Will Begin the 2020-21 School Year Online

Dear CCCS Families,

We received confirmation today (7/27/2020) that Butte County will remain on the State’s monitoring list.  For an up-to-date analysis of the monitoring list, please visit  With that being said, CCCS will transition into our Distance Learning Plan.  We are confident our students will continue to receive a rigorous Common Core State Standard education with the highest of expectations.  As evidenced by increased overall academic scores in iReady Reading and Math last spring, we can say our team will ensure high levels of learning for every one of our students.

It is our plan to commit to approximately 6 weeks of virtual learning with the expectation students will return to Face-to-Face instruction on October 5, 2020.  We will confirm the opening date of in person education when we get closer to October 5th.  We are exploring the option to apply for a waiver and open TK-3 or TK-6 to in person education; however, it is a lengthy process and quite unclear at the moment.  We will keep you posted if we pursue the waiver.  For now, please know our team will deliver an optimal virtual education to your child(ren).

We have a Town Hall meeting this Thursday at CCCS (7/30/2020).  It is for all families who have questions or want detailed information on our Safe Reopen Plan.  The meeting starts at 5:30 pm.  You can also access the meeting virtually at

Please see our Reopening Plan below.  It addresses our 3 plans for opening our school safely.

Thank you families,
