    Measure R Modernization Plans for College View

    Measure R bond modernization is one of the most comprehensive, important facilities projects that the Ocean View School District has ever undertaken. Following its passage in November 2016 thanks to the generous support of our community, we committed to pursuing these projects with strict adherence to safety, the least amount of disruption to learning, efficiency and economy, maximum oversight of the construction process, and timeliness.

    This past March, Dr. Michael Conroy, Deputy Superintendent of Administrative Services, presented our Board of Trustees with updated, detailed information about our Measure R modernization projects, costs, and timelines. Previously, we had planned to modernize two school sites in 2018-2019, College View and Westmont Elementary Schools. Taking into consideration the actual interim housing costs, Measure R bond cash flow, stakeholders’ input on school priority needs and architectural designs, and construction phasing, we have revised our plans and will now modernize one school each year.

    What does this mean for College View families?

    College View Elementary School’s modernization has been postponed for one year and will occur in the 2019-2020 school year. During that time, College View students and staff will safely attend school at Sun View, not the OVPP/Pleasant View campus as previously discussed. Construction at College View will be completed in time to welcome everyone back for fall 2020.

    In the 2018-19 school year, Westmont Elementary School, which houses our Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Academy, will be modernized. Westmont students and staff will move to the Sun View campus during this time. Sun View will serve as our only interim/temporary campus during each schools’ modernization project.

    If you would like more information about Measure R bond projects in the Ocean View School District, please visit our website at www.ovsd.org/MeasureR. We are committed to being transparent and communicating regularly with our community as part of our Measure R bond modernization projects.

     

    College View Principal Message

    College View has a long history as an award-winning, high achieving Title 1 school for demonstrating high levels of student academic achievement and reducing the achievement gap. We maintain a consistent focus on improving student achievement through our strong Professional Learning Communities, our commitment to on-going Professional Development, and authentic literacy.  Our highly qualified staff, which includes three Ocean View School District Elementary Teachers of the Year, provide effective standards-based instruction and a positive learning environment for all students.  We are very proud that College View also houses the district DHH  (Deaf and Hard of Hearing) Program, and we can offer students, at all grade levels, bi-weekly classes in American Sign Language.   

    Our commitment to utilize current researched-based programs and teaching strategies allows our staff to provide state of the art instruction and project- based learning opportunities.  Our leveled and differentiated English Language Arts instruction is enhanced by our Read 180 program and our school-wide reading program, Accelerated Reader.  Our Mathematics instruction is augmented by our ST Math Program, and students visit one of our two computer labs at least three times per week for 30-45 minute sessions. All classrooms have computers and access to chrome books. As a legacy school, we have partnered with the Los Alamitos Army Base to annually provide our 5th grade students with a one week, free, STEM. (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) experience.   

    Our Positive Behavior, Intervention, and Support Program (P.B.I.S.) is practiced school-wide and encourages our students to make positive choices and meaningful contributions while providing a framework for a structured progressive discipline program. Our staff believes in “Catching Students Being Good," so we have developed programs to celebrate this. Children can earn “Super You’s” and these tickets can be redeemed at the student store which is run by our 4th and 5th Grade Kid Council, or they may earn a Proud Board Ticket for lunch with the principal. Students focus on monthly character traits which promote; honesty, self-discipline, compassion, cooperation, respect, generosity, friendship, acceptance and perseverance. Our diverse population of 440 Transitional Kindergarten through fifth grade students are  embraced by our staff, and cultural differences are acknowledged and celebrated. Our community partnerships with the Huntington Beach Kiwanis Club and the Huntington Beach Optimist Clubs bring enrichment opportunities to our students. Children are also encouraged to participate in community outreach programs such as Bunny’s Kids to help families in need, and Orange County homeless shelters.

    The visual and performing arts are very important to our school and community. Together with our PTA and local businesses we are able to provide vocal music instruction to our primary and upper grade students. Our after-school, free, Tap and Hip Hop dance classes are a big “hit” and are well attended and enjoyed. Our Art Master’s program exposes children to the visual arts and art appreciation. Our partnership with the Huntington Beach Art Center allows us to participate in an annual gala where College View students are able to display their beautiful works of art. All grade levels perform plays in the Spring and many students perform at our annual talent show.

    Parent involvement is encouraged and College View offers many opportunities for families to get involved. We have an active, results-orientated and supportive PTA along with a School Site/ English Language Advisory Council that allows all community members to offer input and monitor the school goals and expenditures to achieve our growth targets. Clear and precise stakeholder communication and participation is achieved through a myriad of avenues; district, school and teacher websites, a Weekly Community Bulletin, our Blackboard Connect automated message system, Take Home Tuesday Folders, and email blasts.

    School spirit abounds at College View, and we embrace the importance of providing enrichment and after- school programs. Students participate in monthly themed spirit days, Walk Through the Revolution, Walk Through California, the Imagination Machine, Author’s Day, Reading in the Park, standards-based field trips, book fairs, Family Nights, Jog-A-thon, Trunk or Treat, Skate Nights, after school fee based programming, a S.T.E.M. class, and numerous restaurant nights, just to name a few.

    Our entire staff takes great pride in our school. Our commitment to excellence is prevalent in every aspect of our day, and our community members echo this sentiment. Our school facility is well maintained, clean, and safe.  As a matter of fact, our Head Custodian was recently named the 2016 Custodian of the Year for the State of California. We have Wildcat “Pride” and it shows! College View is described by many as having a welcoming family atmosphere.  All of our  children  receive an exemplary education while feeling supported socially and emotionally by our compassionate and caring staff.
