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!

Oak View Gym Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting Today!

Huntington Beach, CA-Today serves as the culmination of a struggle for environmental justice in a community that began 6 years ago. The School District was so proud to work with the AQMD, our pro bono attorneys: Connor, Fletcher, and Hedenkamp, the media, the Ocean View Teachers Association, local activists Oak View ComUNIDAD, and most importantly the school’s neighbors and the Oak View community, who had been been suffering in silence for decades due to governmental apathy and lack of action. Trustee Briscoe and I were proud to lead this action and today will oversee the grand opening and ribbon cutting for the new gymnasium financed by the legal settlement worth $26M with Republic Trash Services. Thank you to the OVSD Board of Trustees who supported me to handle this matter, litigate, negotiate, and settle on behalf of the them, the district, and the children.
