About Plumas Unified School District
Plumas Unified School District and Plumas County Office of Education are proud to serve the students, families, and communities in four distinct communities, in our rural northeastern California mountain county. PUSD and PCOE serve the students in the 2,613 square miles through four elementary schools, four comprehensive high schools, and eight alternative education sites.
Our county and schools range from Chester in the Lake Almanor north-west region, to Greenville in Indian Valley, to the county seat in Quincy in American Valley and to Portola in the East in Sierra Valley. The driving distance between Chester and Portola is 78 miles with an estimated drive time of approximately two hours. Each community has a TK-6th-grade elementary school and a 7-12th-grade high school.
