Security and Safety

Emergency Number:  Dial 911 or 953-8911

We continue to place high priority on the safety and cleanliness of our school facilities. Lincoln's custodial ratios are among the highest in the state. We have an active safety program that has been a model of compliance with federal and state regulations. Monthly inspections assure safe conditions.

The Stockton Police Department has assigned one full-time School Resource Officer (SRO) to our schools inside city boundaries (Lincoln High/Sture Larsson, Sierra/Pacific, and John R. Williams/Claudia Lan. The presence of the SRO throughout the district brings a continuing sense of safety. Additionally, our district security force is currently comprised of a lead officer and five support officers. Starting in the 2013-14 school year, a safety officer will be permanently assigned to each K-6/8 school. The schools are monitored by night patrols and a Sonitrol alarm system.

Each school has its own safety committee and plan. Each year, a portion of our general fund budget is dedicated to district safety projects. Each school continues with peer mediation and conflict management teams as a student-driven mechanism for students assuming responsibility for student behavior.
