Parents, community invited to join accountability committee
The Local Control Accountability Plan (LCAP) is San Benito High School's assurance to the public and the California Department of Education that we are spending our funding in alignment with state priorities and providing supports to our most underserved students.

If you are interested in serving on this committee or have further questions, please contact Cindi Krokower at 637-5831 x 162.
April is Child Abuse Prevention Month
The prevalence of child abuse in our communities is heartbreaking. Each day, many instances go unreported and countless children are subject to abuse and neglect. April was first declared Child Abuse Prevention Month by presidential proclamation in 1983. Since then, April has been a time to acknowledge the importance of families and communities working together to prevent child abuse. April is a time to recognize that we each play a part in promoting the social and emotional well-being of children and families in our communities. Learn more at the Keenan Abuse Prevention Center website or the California Department of Social Services website,
