The Bakersfield City School District (BCSD) values the importance of collaboration with our stakeholders as we develop and implement systems and structures to support the overall excellence of our students. The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is a critical part of the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) and is essential to our current Blueprint for Academic Success.

We value your feedback in the planning process. Whether you are a parent, student, teacher, employee, or community member, the BCSD Board of Education and Administration would like to hear from you. Please take a few minutes to provide your feedback. All responses are anonymous.

We thank you for your time.
