In order to answer these questions and many others, OVSD and our master planning partner DLR, has developed an interactive, digital Facilities Master Plan to assist the District and our community navigate our current and future facilities' needs. The vision of the Board of Education is to continue to provide our students with the best and most viable educational opportunities available.
We invite you to read the exciting transformational journey of OVSD's proposed Educational Facilities Master Plan.
The Ocean View School District has contracted with Davis Demographics (Davis) to update and analyze demographic data relevant to the District’s facility planning efforts. The scope of contracted work includes: mapping the District, geocoding a student file that is usually representative of October's official head count, developing and researching pertinent demographic data, identifying future residential development plans, if any, and developing a seven year student population forecast. Davis will then assist the District in developing solutions for housing future student population. This study was prepared to assist the District’s efforts in evaluating future site requirements and attendance area changes.
The purpose of this report is to identify and inform the District of the trends occurring in the community; how these trends may affect future student population; and to assist in illustrating facility adjustments that may be necessary to accommodate the potential student population shifts. The District can then use this information to better plan for the need, location and timing of facility or boundary adjustments.
The Sources of Data section details where the two sources of data, geographic and nongeographic, are collected and how each data item is used in the seven year student population forecast model.
The Seven Year Forecast Methodology section discusses, in detail, how the factors used in the study were calculated and why they were used. These factors include: the calculation of incoming kindergarten classes, additional students from new housing (referred to as student yield), the effects of student mobility, and a detailed review of planned residential development within the District.
The Student Resident Forecast Summary sections are a review of school year 2015/16's student resident forecast results. Included in these sections are a district wide student population forecast summary and a projected resident student population summary for each existing attendance area and study area.
While reading this report, it is important to remember that this is a snapshot of current and potential student population based upon data gathered in fall 2015. Population demographics change, development plans change, funding opportunities can change, District priorities can change, and therefore, new forecasts and adjustments to the overall Facilities Master Plan will continue to be necessary in the future.
