Traditional brick-and-mortar schools have experienced enormous challenges in developing actionable plans to educate and motivate their students through the various stages of the Coronavirus pandemic. Altus Schools, a consortium of 7 charter schools across Southern California serving 8,000 K-12 students annually, has been able to take its unique approach to learning and adapt it quickly and seamlessly to the task of effectively educating its students during the pandemic. Highlights of their strategy include:
- An immediate transition to distance learning
- No learning loss due to their 12-month calendar
- Grading continued without pause
- Chromebooks and internet hotspots issued to students
- Continued distribution of lunch
- Deep-cleaning protocols enacted at all Resource Centers in anticipation of Phase 3 reopening.
Altus Schools share the philosophy of putting students first in education. Their schools focus on improving student achievement, creating prototypes for educational reform, and improving the quality of life for students, their families, and their communities.

Every student enjoys the benefits of a custom-built course plan, one-on-one attention from teachers, individualized college and career planning, and a flexible schedule that meets their academic and personal needs.
