The historic 1905 Quincy Elementary School located at 50 Church Street in Quincy was used to teach students for almost 50 years until the California Earthquake Standards Act came into place, at which point it was adapted into offices for the staff of Plumas County Office of Education (PCOE) and Plumas Unified School District (PUSD). In 2014, the old schoolhouse and district office was vacated due to waste plumbing and flooding issues. The previous administration at the time of the flooding, decided not to go forward with repairs or plans for the building after the initial mitigation was addressed. This left the historic building vacant and deteriorating for three years. Published 4-18-18
A new “Woods Bus” Added to the PUSD Transportation Fleet To Transport Students Safely into the Woods for Hands on Learning and Adventure!
Back in 2012, Rob Wade and the previous Transportation Director Ken Pierson began discussing the possibility of a bus that would more easily navigate forest service roads and transport students safely into National Forest lands for their outdoor adventures and projects with the Forest Service.

When the Quincy Special Day Preschool (QSDP) was located at Feather River College, the preschoolers with moderate to severe disabilities were able to regularly engage with their typically developing peers that were located next door at FRC’s Child Development Center. However, when the preschool program relocated to the Pioneer campus, the QSDP preschoolers became the only preschoolers on campus. Linda Gay, the current Special Education Preschool teacher, has been working to remedy this problem over the last few years. She shared, “Although we are still working with Head Start to move them to our facility, it's been a lengthy process, and our students deserve to have typically developing peers to engage with on a daily basis.” Published on 10-19-17
