Charter: History, Mission & Vision

Delta Elementary Charter School is located in the small rural community of Clarksburg, California. When the River Delta Unified School District announced its plans to close Clarksburg Elementary School at the end of the 2005-2006 school year, a group of interested citizens initiated a course of action that led to the creation of Delta Elementary Charter School. After a year of careful deliberation, planning, and hard work, the school opened on August 22, 2007, with an enrollment of 95 students and five teachers.
