The Ocean View School District held a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday at Star View Elementary to kick-off a year-long modernization project that will
take place at the site. Star View will be the fifth school in the district to be modernized by funds generated from the Measure R general obligation bond that was passed in 2016.
Gina Clayton-Tarvin, President of the OVSD Board of Trustees said, “We are so excited to be able to provide the students, staff and community with a new, state-of-the-art school. The Star View modernization will ensure that students are provided with a safe and innovative learning environment, with a rigorous curriculum that will prepare them for middle school and high school.”
The transformation of Star View will be comprehensive and will include:
• Fully modernized classrooms
• Technology classroom upgrades
• Outdoor, double-sided amphitheater
• New lunch structure tied into the amphitheater
• Reorienting the front of the school to decrease the neighborhood traffic
• New student drop off and parking area
• Infrastructure replacement – such as larger dual paned windows, lighting, air conditioning, heating, piping, drinking fountains, bathrooms upgrades, and ADA access.
• New kitchen for student meals
• New innovative classroom furniture
• New grade level appropriate play structures
• New school administrative office
Students will be relocated to an interim site for the 2022-23 school year and will return to a “new” school for the 2023-24 school year. Ledesma & Meyer Construction Company and DLR Architect Group will partner with OVSD on the project.
Star View is located at 9411 Worthy Dr. in Midway City. The OVSD is a K-8 system that serves northern Huntington Beach and parts of Fountain Valley, Westminster and Midway City.
