Welcome to Business and Administrative Services. As Assistant Superintendent, I oversee the divisions comprised of Business Services, Child Nutrition Services, Classified Human Resources, Maintenance/Operations, Risk Management, Technology and Transportation. OUSD has a wonderful team of committed employees working in each of these departments. For information on how these departments serve the students, staff and parents of OUSD please visit the galleries listed on this page.

Although not a native of the Ojai Valley, I grew up in Moorpark and fondly remember competing in track meets and basketball games at Nordhoff High School. I graduated from UCLA and received my Juris Doctor and Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Washington University in St. Louis. While attending law school, I interned for then-State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jack O’Connell, in his Government Affairs division at CDE. Prior to coming to Ojai Unified, I worked for the Santa Barbara County Education Office; first, as the Financial Services Manager for the Special Education Department, and more recently as the Director of Classified Human Resources.

My wife, Heather, and children Christian and Chloe, already love the Ojai Valley. I enjoy hearing from the families of Ojai Unified School District, and hope we can work together to foster a dynamic future for our students. For questions or comments, please email acantwell@ojaiusd.org or call (805)640-4300 x1005.

Assistant Superintendent
