Board Goals

Vision

The Oxnard Union High School District vision is one of high expectations and powerful futures for every student.

Goals

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Continue to build teacher and administrator leadership capacity leading to trusting relationships and organizational health.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. The District will ensure fiscal solvency through the elimination of deficit-spending.
