My Top 3 Priorities

  • Safety is a top priority. All students and staff should feel that their school is a safe and healthy place to be so that they can focus on learning.
  • Ensure that OUHSD provides a variety of pathways for all students to achieve the goals they have set for their futures beyond high school.
  • To be financially responsible and ensure that spending priorities are as close to our students and classrooms as possible.



I was born and raised in Oroville, and graduated from OHS in 1975.  In fact, my family has been in this area since the Gold Rush days.  My wife and I built our own home and raised our two children in the Miner’s Ranch area of Oroville.


I have a diverse background beginning with my service in the Marine Corps following high school graduation.  I was a mill worker from 1979-1991, then worked in construction, and as an equipment operator for Lundberg Farms. Most recently I worked at Oroville High as a “universal” and a security staff member. It was while working for the school district that I became interested in serving the community as a school board member.

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of California Education Fund (1)

A recent law made major changes in the way that the state allocates funding to schools.  What will you do to ensure that the public understands your local control formula for school spending and your plan to measure outcomes?
Answer from Joseph Boehme:

The OUHSD’s Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP) is now in its third year. The document is available on the school’s website. It is a dynamic, ever changing document but it can also be a confusing document to understand. The LCAP’s priorities and measurable outcomes are adjusted each year as needed after careful consideration by the LCAP Committee. The proposed plan is presented for public review and the final plan is presented to the board of trustees for approval.  



A board member is duty-bound to share their knowledge with the community. I feel it is a board member’s responsibility to be knowledgeable about the fundamental plans and policies, such as the LCAP, that are the foundation of the OUHSD’s system and pertinent to its financial sustainability. I plan to volunteer to be an LCAP committee member. As part of the ongoing process I will better understand what changes are made to the plan and the rationale behind those changes.
