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.

Promoting Achievement and Student Success (PASS Program)

PASS AmeriCorps logo.pngThe PASS AmeriCorps Mentor meets with referred students individually and in small groups to build a relationship to connect students to academic improvement in core subjects, attendance and behavior and to develop an individual goal plan. Students work to track their improvement, develop as positive leaders in their school and community through comprehensive character and skill development as outlined in our program.

The PASS AmeriCorps program also provides school and community gang and crime prevention education for students, school staff and parents. Parents are notified and must complete a PASS AmeriCorps Enrollment form for their child to participate in the program. The PASS AmeriCorps Mentors have some contact with parents to encourage involvement in their child’s education.For more information you may contact us at:
