April Meeting Featured Roni Ellis of the Ocean View School District
Roni Ellis of the Ocean View School District was the speaker at the April 1st meeting of the Huntington Beach Coordinating Council. Roni was the Principal at Harbour View Elementary before becoming the Director for Administration and Community Relations. She spoke about the budget challenges the district faces, despite the expected added funding from the voter’s passage of Prop. 30. One program they have instituted is a Saturday Academy that has not only given students with absences a chance to make-up for the lost learning time, but the program also allows the district to recapture some of the lost ADA monies. (The planned sessions will generate almost $200,000 in revenue.) Roni said that they are always looking for community volunteers. She said that interested parties should send her an email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
