Ojai Unified Ousts Superintendent
Tiffany Morse is out as superintendent of the Ojai Unified School District. Trustees voted unanimously to approve a separation agreement with Morse on Monday – one week after a closed session performance evaluation.
Morse had led OUSD for nearly four years. The district is now financially strapped. It’s facing insolvency and a possible state takeover.
