Statement: Camp Fire and Southern California Fires Impacting Charter School Communities

November 16, 2018

The California Charter Schools Association (CCSA) has released a statement about wildfires burning throughout California, including the Camp Fire in Butte County, the Hill Fire in Thousand Oaks, and Woolsey Fire in Southern California. We will continue to update this webpage as more information becomes available.

"CCSA is devastated by the loss that wildfires like the Camp Fire, Hill Fire and Woolsey Fire have brought to charter school communities and communities at large throughout Butte County and Southern California. We are in steady contact with school leaders and are providing a range of supports to our school communities impacted by the fires, including working with affected charter schools to identify alternative education options for displaced students."

"For those interested, please join us in supporting the Butte County and Southern California communities via the Red Cross."
