    Dear Oxnard School District Community,

    I am honored to address you as the Interim Superintendent of the Oxnard School District. It is with great excitement and a sense of purpose that I step into this role, committed to upholding our district's core values,  which include but are not limited to equity, integrity, accountability, and service. As we navigate the educational landscape together, I want to share our unwavering dedication to our student’s success and the pursuit of excellence in all that we do.

    At the heart of our collective efforts is the Oxnard Empowers Strategic Plan, a roadmap designed to guide us in creating an educational experience that empowers every student to reach their full potential. This plan is not just a document; it reflects our commitment to fostering an environment where each student's unique strengths are celebrated, and where every student has access to the resources, opportunities, and support needed to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

    Central to our strategic plan is the Oxnard School District Student Profile. This profile outlines the qualities and skills we aspire to cultivate in our students, preparing them not only for academic success but also for life beyond our classrooms. Our students are encouraged to be innovators, collaborators, problem solvers, achievers, digital learners, and global thinkers focused on the future.  They will possess the tools to adapt to a rapidly changing world, equipped with resilience, empathy, and a growth mindset.

    Equity remains a cornerstone of our district's mission. We are dedicated to ensuring that every student, regardless of their background, experiences an inclusive and supportive learning environment. This commitment to equity compels us to address disparities, challenge biases, and continuously seek ways to create an equitable playing field for all students.

    Integrity guides our decisions and actions, as we hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards of honesty and ethics. We recognize the importance of building trust within our community and maintaining open lines of communication. We welcome feedback and partnerships that strengthen our district's ability to serve our students effectively.

    Accountability is a fundamental pillar of our work. We are committed to setting clear goals, measuring our progress, and making data-driven decisions that improve outcomes for our students. Through our collective efforts, we will continuously strive for improvement, identifying areas where we can enhance the educational experience we provide.

    Service is at the heart of our purpose. As educators, administrators, staff, parents, and community members, we all play a vital role in supporting the growth and development of our students. By fostering a culture of service, we demonstrate our dedication to the well-being of our students and the communities we serve.

    As we embark on this journey together, I am deeply committed to the success of every student in the Oxnard School District. Together, we will work towards a future where our students are not only well-prepared academically but are also empowered to make positive contributions to society. I am excited to collaborate with you all and to witness the transformative impact we can create when we come together with a shared vision and purpose.

    With gratitude and enthusiasm,

    Dr. Ana DeGenna
    Superintendent
