Parent/Guardian Involvement Opportunities

  • Citizens’ Oversight Committee (COC):  

On June 5, 2018, voters within the Hueneme Elementary School District voted to approve Measure B to authorize the District to issue general obligation bonds to finance certain specified projects and facilities.

Education Code Section 15278(a) requires that the Governing Board establish a Citizens’ Oversight Committee. There are currently multiple openings on the COC.  If you would be willing to serve on the COC, please contact Dave Ragsdale, Associate Superintendent, at

  • Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) Advisory Committee: 

The LCAP is a three-year plan that describes the goals, actions, services, and expenditures to support positive student outcomes that address state and local priorities One key aspect of the LCAP process is the engagement of all community members.  The LCAP Advisory Committee reviews and provides feedback and input on the plan. If you would be interested in joining the LCAP Advisory Committee, please contact Dave Castellano, Sr. Director of Student Support Services, at

Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Projects

  • Thanks to Measure B passed by voters in 2018, construction started in January 2021 on installing new HVAC and fire alarm systems at Haycox, Hathaway and Williams (round 1 schools). These projects are nearing completion and should be finished by the end of 2021.  Round 2 schools include Green, Hueneme and Sunkist.  Construction started at Green this past week, and the Hueneme and Sunkist projects should start in January.  Round 3 schools are Blackstock and Larsen.  Round 4 schools are Bard, Beach and Parkview.

Have a wonderful weekend!
