What You Need to Know
Measure R bond modernization is one of the most comprehensive, important facilities projects that the Ocean View School District has ever undertaken. Following passage of our bond in November 2016 thanks to the community's generous support, 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.
Dr. Michael Conroy, Deputy Superintendent of Administrative Services, presents regularly to our Board of Trustees updated information about our Measure R modernization projects, costs, and timelines. Taking into consideration actual interim housing costs, Measure R bond cash flow, stakeholders’ input on school priority needs and architectural designs, and construction phasing, OVSD is modernizing one school each year.
Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, Westmont Elementary School is being modernized. Westmont students and staff are temporarily located in our Interim Campus (formerly Sun View), which now serves as interim housing during each schools’ modernization project. Construction at Westmont will be completed in time to welcome everyone back for fall 2019.
Next will be College View Elementary School during the 2019-2020 school year. College View students and staff are making preparations to move to the Interim Campus over the summer of 2019.
Why Is Sun View Now An Interim Campus?
As of July 1, 2018, Sun View Elementary School closed. Its remaining students and staff became part of Westmont Visual and Performing Arts School, home of the Ocean View School District's VAPA program for elementary students.
Sun View, now called Ocean View's Interim Campus, serves our students and families in a new capacity as the Measure R interim housing site. It has been upgraded with modern portable buildings, restrooms, and facilities to house schools during modernization projects over the next decade.
