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!

Harbour View Patriotic Veterans Day Assembly and First Responders Fair

Huntington Beach, CA-Harbour View Veterans Day and First Responders Fair! Harbour View Elementary students, staff, parents and community members were met by Military personnel from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Huntington Beach Police Department K-9 and Mounted Police Units as well as Hawthorne Police Department SWAT unit and Gabby the Talking Police Car entertained. Our amazing federal agencies FBI, DEA, ATF and Homeland Security taught about their functions and more. The morning began with a Veterans Day Patriotic Assembly honoring our community heroes. The helicopter from the Huntington Beach Police Department made a grand entrance by landing on the school field to end the assembly and to kick-off the First Responders Fair. Students rotated through seven stations where the first responders explained what their jobs entail and how they help to keep our communities safe. I even got to play news reporter, when the Channel 7 cameraman allowed me “interview” our amazing students and staff for a segment. Active duty and veteran members of the military were honored and the experience was truly amazing for our OVSD students! (Click link to visit Facebook photo gallery)

Golden View Farm Grand Reopening and Ribbon Cutting



Huntington Beach, CA-Golden View Farm Grand Reopening and Ribbon Cutting this morning! The GV Farm provides students with multiple, unique, hands-on learning opportunities. Caring for living animals help children understand life cycles, the reciprocity between animals and humans, and the importance of making responsible choices. Tending the garden allows students to plant, harvest and cook nutritious food using natural ingredients. Through the recycle, reuse and repurpose program, students learn how to be stewards of the environment. Key upgrades made to the farm include: new animal enclosures for sheep and goats, an outdoor exercise area for animals, hardscaping, and new interior and exterior fencing. Congrats GV!

Cerritos Elementary School Pancake Breakfast

Cerritos, CA-Happening now, the 15th annual pancake breakfast sponsored by the Cerritos Elementary Educational Foundation. So great to see almost 1,000 community members present to celebrate our 50th anniversary of the schools opening. What better way to spend a Saturday morning than raising money for students and schools. I’ve been busy serving as cashier this morning but got a chance to say hello to students, families, and friends. Thanks to ABCUSD Board Members Maynard Law and Board President Ernie Nishii for supporting our school. They stopped by with Superintendent Dr. Mary Sieu. Always great to see the deputies from the LASD Cerritos Substation who brought out LASD Explorers today too. Great program for our youth, check it out!
