The Oxnard Union High School District vision is one of high expectations and powerful futures for every student.
- Prepare students for College and Career readiness, ensuring that every student is challenged to successfully access rigorous curricula and 21st Century learning strategies that lead to tangible post-secondary outcomes. This is to be accomplished through the effective implementation of the following procedures:
– Emphasize teaching such 21st Century skills as communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking across the curriculum, which supports the achievement of college-level rigor and career readiness, and which will be assessed by such measures as the PSAT, SAT, CAASPP and other college and career-readiness assessments;
– Provide targeted support for English Learners, students with disabilities, foster youth, and low-income students in order to close the achievement gap over time;
– Increase UC/CSU a-g completion rates at each school site, focusing on subgroup achievement;
– Increase the percentage of students receiving college credit through the Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate programs;
– Continue ongoing articulation with colleges, universities and our partner school districts, including the sharing of student achievement data.
– To ensure the successful implementation of new graduation requirements, the District will implement effective interventions and support procedures to help all students successfully complete the UC/CSU a-g requirements and access Career Pathway and Academy coursework.
- Emphasize teaching literacy (reading and writing) in every classroom to support our English learners in increasing their langage proficiency and to improve their reclassification rates, with a strong focus on content-specific academic vocabulary — especially in mathematics.
- Continue to build teacher and administrator leadership capacity leading to trusting relationships and organizational health.
- Implement plans to systematically address enrollment growth and overcrowding, including building a new Oxnard-area high school, consideration of boundary changes, and the effective implementation of the inter/intra-district transfer process.
- Maintain facilities and infrastructures that support a safe school and provide a positive learning environment and equitable learning conditions for all students through the implementation of the Measure A School Bond which was approved by voters on June 5, 2018 and the comprehensive Facilities Master Plan which was approved by the Board on March 14, 2018.
- Systematically address the recommendations of the independent audit conducted for Technology Services and report periodically to the Board the progress made on implementing these recommendations.
- The District will ensure fiscal solvency through the elimination of deficit-spending.
