Health and Success in School are Interrelated.

Schools cannot achieve their primary mission of education if students and staff are not fit physically, mentally, and socially.

The present and future health, safety, and well-being of all students is the concern of Bakersfield City School District. Schools, in partnership with families, have a duty to help prevent unnecessary injury, disease, and chronic health conditions.
