Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) is beginning the implementation of optional Online Registration for new students and Online Data Confirmation for currently enrolled students. Our goal is to make this process more convenient for our families and your busy schedules. Your site will provide information to you regarding this optional process.

If you do not have access to a computer or just need assistance in the process, we have scheduled a series of evenings and two Saturdays to provide assistance. If you prefer to complete the process, as you have done in the past, by using the paper packet we can provide that to you as well.

If your student is currently enrolled in OUSD, you will simply need to confirm their registration. If you need assistance doing this, please feel free to join us on one of these dates.

We look forward to assisting you in our transition to the optional Online Registration process.

Parent Informational Meeting for Math Common Core

Common Core Standards are what?...what does that even mean? With all the changes taking place in regards to curriculum, pedagogy, and standards many are wanting to know what are the implications? More importantly, how can I support my child with their math? As a result the district has planned two opportunities to be exposed to common core math and ask the questions that many have wanted to know. I am hopeful you can make one of these two events:

Tuesday, February 25 @ King Middle School 6:00PM


Thursday, February 27 @ Lincoln Middle School 6:00PM


California State law state requires that all children entering first grade in a California public or private school have a comprehensive health examination or waiver completed within 18 months prior to or within 90 days after the first day of first grade.  State law also requires that children have an oral health assessment (dental check-up) within 12 months prior to or by May 31 of their children’s first year in public school, whether through kindergarten or first grade.  Please turn in the completed forms to the office. 

Good health is vital to learning and check-ups ensure that children start school healthy and ready to learn. Families unable to pay for examinations for their children may be eligible to receive no-cost health checkups through the Child Health and Disability Prevention (CHDP) program. Families can learn more by calling 1-800-675-2229.
