Letter from the Principal


    Dear Parent(s),

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, and thank you for choosing PLA for your student’s education. Our teachers and staff are excited about our back our students returning to campus.  We realize that tough challenges lie ahead as we transition back to in-person learning.  We are proud of getting our charter renewal petition passed by the Stockton Unified School District Board of Education.  Pacific Law Academy is going through the WASC Accreditation process this year.  We have more work to do and are as committed as ever to our students.

    As we welcome our new 9th graders and other new students to PLA, we would also like to welcome our teaching and support staff back to campus.  They have done a tremendous job of communicating and supporting our students through the last year and a half of Distance Learning. 

    Pacific Law Academy will continue Tiger Talk, time, dates, and location will be communicated to the parents at the start of the school year.  It is our wish that we can hold the meetings in person.  This is time set aside for conversations about hearing your concerns and ideas as we come out of Distance and Hybrid learning.  We are also looking to re-establish partnerships that were developed pre-pandemic.  We will need three new parent School Site Council members for the next two school years. 

    Back to School night will be communicated to parents when school starts this year.  We are planning to have the event in person. 

    I am looking forward to welcoming all of our students back to campus for a successful 2021-2022 school year.
