McFarland Unified School District has recently begun serving on the Community Advisory Boards for both North Kern State Prison and Kern Valley State Prison.

As a result, the prison administrations have become very strong community resource partners to help meet specific needs in our community.

On Sept. 20, North Kern State Prison warden Kelly Santoro, together with members of her administrative team, responded to a local family’s need within the district.

Our partners at the prison became aware of a family housed at our local motel with significant need and collected clothing, cookware and home items, including a small refrigerator.

The items were donated to the family at Kern Avenue Elementary School with the support of school and district staff.
