A Message from Gina Clayton-Tarvin

Ocean View School District is one of the top performing school districts in Orange County and the state. With award winning teachers, classified employees, administrative leadership and an experienced board of trustees, the district is a destination educational institution in California.

Thanks to the voters of OVSD and the passage of Measure R, the plans for modernization, repairs, and upgrades to school facilities are making OVSD the premiere school district in Southern California, providing state of the art facilities along with first class learning opportunities for 21st Century learners.

I have been elected as board president for the year 2020, and served as vice-president for the year 2019, served as clerk in 2018, and served as president for 3 consecutive terms (2014-2017) prior to that. During my time on the board of trustees, I have worked diligently to build a team that made partnerships, not politics, a priority. School improvement in the Ocean View School District is an ongoing process. Parents and teachers now have a seat at the table where quality education decisions are made. Measurable results include: improving student achievement, providing challenging academics, decreasing class sizes, and increasing the number of art, music, and after-school programs. We have improved technology and are dedicated to providing state of the art learning environments for all students.

During my twenty-three year career as a classroom teacher and union leader, I have learned the importance of actively listening to and collaborating with parents, teachers, and staff to increase efficiency, resolve issues, and empower the people who work with our students everyday. Students in the Ocean View School District are my top priority. I am proud to have been endorsed by hundreds of teachers, parents, and community members. I am thankful to have been re-elected to serve the OVSD Community. Thank you for your support, as we are Ocean View Strong!

Thank you Councilman Al Austin!

Long Beach, CA-As the 2020 election season is just heating up, I am proud to announce an endorsement of my re-election campaign for OVSD Board of Trustees from Long Beach City Councilman Al Austin.

Observing the life of Martin Luther King Jr.





Washington DC-One of the most inspired days of my life was to visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington DC. MLK is by far the most important figure in the Civil Rights Movement in our nation and one of most inspirational humans to ever live. As a teacher himself, King believed deeply in the power of education.

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”-MLK

State of the City Address by Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia

Long Beach, CA-Thanks go out to our neighbors in Long Beach and especially to Mayor Dr. Robert Garcia for inviting us tonight, having Vice Mayor Dee Andrews introduce us to the crowd in the packed Terrace Theater, to participate in the annual State of the City address and for helping us to learn so much. I was pleased to be present with our OVSD VP Patricia Singer and Brea Olinda Board Clerk Keri Kropke. We learned a great deal about the City, the School District, City College, and CSULB. Long Beach has a great regional history that ties it to OVSD and to HB in general. Dr. Garcia highlighted many great accomplishments of the City and especially the new CSULB campus satellite and housing planned for downtown. As a multi time alumnus of Long Beach State, I was especially excited to hear about the progress. Always a pleasure to see my longtime friend LB Councilman Al Austin too. Great work folks, and GO BEACH!
