KHSD Mission Statement

The mission of the Kern High School District is to provide programs and services to allow all students to graduate from high school prepared to succeed in the workplace or at the post-secondary level.


KHSD Parent & Family Center

The creation of KHSD Parent Centers support the district’s core values in the commitment to focus on engaging parents and families as an integral part of the success of KHSD students. Research shows that collaborative leadership strengthens our schools and improves services for students.

 We value and encourage parent and community input as we begin the process of incorporating and providing services to parents and families. We anticipate to grow in scope and services as these new Parent Centers begin a transitional process in becoming a part of the school and community culture and environment. It is a goal to address and meet the needs of the parents and families in order to fully assist in preparing KHSD students for lifelong learning and success.


KHSD Focus on Parent and Community Engagement

  • Supporting strong relationships
  • Facilitating two-way communication
  • Linking to learning
  • Valuing diversity
  • Advocating for every student
  • Sharing power and decision making
