What is the LCAP?
The Southern Kern USD Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) articulates our District's vision to improve outcomes and opportunities for all students and to close equity gaps across our district.

- Goal 2: Create a safe and welcoming learning environment where students attend and are connected to their schools.
- Goal 3: Maintain a climate where families and community are provided a safe and healthy environment and are welcomed, informed, involved and confident in the school and district.
