Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year at Butterfield Charter School. I am honored to have this opportunity to serve the students and families of Porterville Unified School District and I look forward to a positive and productive school year.


The program at Butterfield Charter School has been developed and designed to serve students using innovative methods to provide a quality education delivered through an independent study model. The staff at Butterfield Charter School is enthusiastic and well-qualified for the task of educating and guiding students in their development as lifelong learners.


In light of the challenges posed to education due to COVID-19, Butterfield Charter School is uniquely prepared to continue offering a high-quality education through an independent study model.  In addition to completing work at home through Edgenuity, students are required to meet with their teacher at least once per week for a minimum of one hour. Instructional supports available for students to utilize include a resource center, tutoring, part-time seat based courses, and full-time seat based courses.


If you have any questions regarding Butterfield Charter School, please do not hesitate to contact me.
