Curriculum

 

A School District’s Goal and certainly my goal as an OVSD School Board Member will be to ensure that all students learn to the best of their abilities.  When each student leaves the OVSD they should have all the tools they need to be successful in High School and beyond.

 

In my opinion the test scores show that OVSD is not preparing the students for success.  OVSD used to be a leader, not only in the State of California, but nationally.  Now the District is below the Statewide Averages on the State testing.

California School Ranking (CSR) is nowhere near where our students should be achieving.  Comparing to our neighboring school Districts (located within the boundaries of Huntington Beach), Ocean View is ranked overall the lowest, averaging 7.66.  Data obtained from  www.school-ratings.com/counties/Orange.html
