Pacific View Charter School 2.0 (PVCS 2.0) came into existence on July 1, 2017. In 2016, a California Appeals Court Decision declared that Charter Schools could not have school sites outside their sponsoring district. Pacific View Charter School had two school sites located outside the boundaries of Loleta Union Elementary School District and inside the boundaries of Eureka City Schools.
