The new school year recently began for CCP under the leadership of Maria Osborne, Principal; Kimberly Doyle, Assistant Principal; and Michael Gillespie, Executive Director of Charter Alternative Programs.

Principal Osbourne shared her hopes for the coming school year. “My hope is that as we expand resources and services to all students in El Dorado County, we continue to capitalize on educational innovations and improvements for our students and communities so that unmet needs may be impacted.”
