SPECIAL REPORT: OUSD Keeps Christensen
OUSD Board keeps Superintendent Christensen and
confirms "bond vote" set for Monday June 30
The unusual Monday June 23rd Special Meeting that only dealt with the Superintendent's evaluation had sparked widespread speculation on the fate of the Superintendent after the OUSD Board met privately without the Superintendent or other administrators in Closed Session at the Monday June 16th Special Meeting for an extended period of time-then scheduled tonight's Special Meeting to continue the evaluation. In the intervening week wide-spread speculation and a community-wide show of support for Superintendent Christensen throughout the Greater Orange Communities erupted.
That support was on display at the beginning of the meeting with community members addressing the OUSD Board before their Closed Session commenting on the OUSD Superintendent Michael Christensen's leadership, stellar reputation and integrity.
Included in President Ortega's end of the meeting announcement was that the OUSD Board would be voting on whether to place a 2014 Facilities Bond on the November ballot at another Special Meeting on June 30th.
