Laguna Beach Unified School District Chief Technology Officer Michael Morrison was named 2023 Technology Administrator of the Year by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Region 17, covering all Orange County school districts.

ACSA is the largest umbrella organization for school leaders in the nation. Region 17 focuses on serving educational leaders in the pursuit of equity and excellence to meet the diverse needs of all students in Orange County. One of ACSA’s priorities is to ensure that school leaders are recognized for their excellence and dedication to public education; administrators of the year are selected for their outstanding performance and achievement in their respective categories.

“Mr. Morrison’s technological leadership and innovation have paved the way for new methods of teaching that engage our students and inspire our staff to explore different tools and platforms for experiential learning,” Superintendent Jason Viloria said. “He has been leading our technology initiatives for nearly a decade, but the impact of his work will extend far beyond his time with LBUSD.”

Morrison was nominated by executive assistant to the superintendent and board Victoria Webber and Thurston Middle School Principal Joe Vidal and surprised with the award announcement by Viloria, technology services staff, school district and site administrators.

“It is an honor to receive this award from ACSA,” Morrison said. “I really believe in the work ACSA does in creating opportunities to connect with colleagues and learn from each other’s expertise. I am lucky to be in a district that supports creative solutions. Nothing I’ve accomplished could have been possible without the remarkable team in LBUSD and a supportive board of education.”

ACSA Region 17 will recognize all award recipients at the Orange County Administrators of the Year Banquet on May 8 in Irvine.

  1. RE: South Laguna responds to beaches purchased by Laguna Beach,
    from Orange County.
    I couldn’t attend the meeting in the evening due to transportation, but here are additional concerns.

    l. handicapped parking is provided, but under Orange County if no handicapped parking spot available, you could park anywhere in the lot with your handicapped sign displayed.
    No purchase necessary.
    UNDER LAGUNA BEACH OWNERSHIP I AM CONCERNED THE HANDICAPPED PARKING
    WILL ONY BE FOR THE FEW HANDICAPPED SPACES AND YOU COULD BE FINED IF
    NOT IN THE HANDICAPPED SPACES, EVEN WITH YOUR LEGAL HANDICAPPED SIGN.

    2. ACCESS TO THE HELPFUL SAND WHEELCHAIRS. I WAS AT ALSIO CREEK BEACH AND
    NONE WERE AVAILABLE. I WAS TOLD THEY ARE ALL STORED BY MAIN
    BEACH. WILL ANY EVER BE AVAILABLE AT ALSIO????

    3 THE WONDERFUL FIRE PITS CANNOT BE REPLACED BY RENTED POTABLE FIRE PITS.
    THE AMBIANCE IS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT AND WHILE I HAVE RENTED
    THEM IN THE PAST FOR A PRIVATE FAMILY EVENT, IT IS BASICALLY A BBQ.’THEY DO
    THE JOB AS A BBQ AND THEY AREN’T ON THE SAND OF THE BEACH IT SELF. IT SITS ON AN
    AREA THAT IS MORE EASY TO WALK ON AND SAFELY HOLD HE PORTIBLE FIREPITS.
    IT IS LIKE COMARING APPLES AND ORANGES.

    4. THE FULL MOON DRUM CIRCLE COMES ALIVE WITH MUSIC AND DANCING AROUND ONE
    FIRE PIT. IF AT LEAST THIS ONE CAN BE RESTORED IT WOULD CONTINE A GREAT LAGUNA
    BEACH TRADITION.

    THANK YOU FOR HAVING THE FIRST MEETING AT SUZI Q.
