Letter from the Superintendent

January 9, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

It is with a great mixture of emotions I share that my final day as your superintendent will be July 8, 2019. I have accepted a position as Head of School for a private Christian school in Texas.

It is with my sincerest gratitude I wish to thank the Ojai Unified School Board for entrusting me with the superintendency. I have cherished my experience since joining the District nearly four years ago, and it is with tremendous pride I consider all the District has accomplished for the youth of the Ojai Valley during this time.

Ojai is truly a special community. I am continually amazed by the level of dedication shown by parents and community members in serving our students through parent teacher organizations, booster clubs, service organizations, and groups like the Ojai Education Foundation, Food for Thought, Inspire and more! Being “OjaiStrong” existed long before December 2017 and it continues to this day............click here to continue reading

Dear Ojai Unified School District Community,


It is hard to believe we are less than a week away from starting our 2018 - 19 school year!  I hope you and your family had an enjoyable and restful summer. As our district prepares for the start of school, I am proud to share that our staff has been working tirelessly over the last couple of months to get our schools ready for our students. Teachers met with each other over the summer to collaborate and improve instruction; our custodial and maintenance staff has cleaned and fixed our campuses; and our district office staff spent the summer updating our technology systems and streamlining operations to better serve you - our families and community.... click here to continue reading
