Board Update-Trustee Comments
Huntington Beach, CA-Last night we met for our August board meeting and so much occurred. We had a presentation of recognition for Assistant Superintendent Keith Farrow, who received his certificate of completion for CBO status. This is a not only a feather in his cap, but the District’s as well. Congratulations to him on this achievement. We also heard from concerned community members from Circle View including young students who were so eloquent at the microphone. They came to speak to us about their concerns regarding the possible closure of their school, and how it would negatively affect them. I made a public statement that I won’t be supporting school closure for Circle View. We also heard a presentation on Measure R projects with updates on Vista View, Star View, and Mesa View. We also got to enjoy the fruits of the labor of our OVSD maintenance staff that updated and modernized our boardroom for a fraction of the cost, due to having skilled journeymen on staff. We don’t have to contract out and that keeps work in-house and costs down, saving taxpayer dollars. Listen in to hear more of my comments made during our trustees round table. We look forward to seeing our students and teachers back to school in OVSD onn September 5th.
