Ocean View School District Superintendent earns ‘outstanding’ rating

Trustees in the Ocean View School District rated District Superintendent Dr. Carol Hansen as outstanding in her annual performance-based evaluation and thanked her for an array of accomplishments in instruction, student support systems, facilities, funding, budgeting, and District morale.

“Dr. Hansen has done an exemplary job in many areas of District responsibility, including work on new curricular initiatives, oversight of bond-funded construction projects, and by leading her leadership team in the administration of the District,” said Board President John Briscoe. Trustees also lauded Dr. Hansen for renewing trust in the District through her collaborative work style, approach to employee negotiations, and by positively interacting with many District stakeholders.

Dr. Hansen is beginning her fifth year as District superintendent. She joined the Ocean View staff after serving as assistant superintendent for human resources in the ABC Unified School District, and in surrounding districts as a teacher and principal. The Ocean View trustees selected her as superintendent after participating in a rigorous selection process that was overseen by a firm that helps school boards select leaders for districts across the country.

The Ocean View School District serves over 8,000 students on 16 campuses in Huntington Beach, Midway City, Westminster, and Fountain Valley. Its students transition into the Huntington Beach Union High School District.

Dr. Hansen was quick to attribute the accomplishments of her time in the District to the collaboration that has been established between her administration with the Board and staff members of the District. “I am very proud to be associated with the Board, teachers, and staff of the District. None of my accomplishments would have been possible without the dedicated work of our school principals and their teaching and non-teaching staff members. We work as a team in the District with a clear focus on what is best for students,” she said.
