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 vice-president for the year 2019, served as clerk in 2018, and served as president for 3 consecutive terms (2014-2017). 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!

Harley Rouda campaign kickoff at our Oak View Gym!

Huntington Beach, CA-I was proud to host Harley Rouda for his campaign kickoff in our brand new Oak View School gymnasium. Note that per the CA Civic Center Act, the gym can be rented for public use. This beautiful facility was funded by a litigation settlement with Republic Services, the trash hauler that was polluting our students, teachers, and community for far too long. Hundreds of community members were present to hear about what’s next for election 2020. So pleased to see strong community leaders Costa Mesa Mayor Katrina Foley and Santa Ana Councilman Vincente Sarmiento there actively supporting Harley. I’m endorsing Harley for re-election for CA48 in 2020 because he believes in environmental justice for ALL his constituents. My mom, a lifelong Republican, has decided once again to cross party lines to support Harley who is a former Republican himself, not only with her vote, but with financial support too. We believe in his message and his actions in Congress thus far. He has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is dedicated and steadfast in his resolve. In his first 6 months, he is the most legislatively productive freshman member in Congress!
