The Oceanside Unified School District offers several options for students to enroll in kindergarten and transitional kindergarten programs. 

Click OUSD Kinder for information and how to register. 


2016-17 Transitional Kindergarten

Placement of Transitional Kindergarten (TK) students will be done at the Educational Support Services Office for the 2016-17 school year.  Your child is not guaranteed a specific school site for TK by residential address.  To be included in the lottery for placement, you must come to the ESS between May 2 and May 13, 2016, to fill out the form choosing the top three schools you are interested in having your child attend.  The lottery will be completed on Monday, May 16th, and notifications of placement will be made within that week.  Anyone not participating in the lottery will be assigned to a school on a first come, first served basis to one of the remaining openings.  You must bring proof of residence within OUSD boundaries with you to apply, but your residential address will not be used to determine placement.  Your child must turn five years old between Sep 2 and Dec 2, 2016 to be age eligible.  Registration instructions will be provided to you with your approved placement letter. 

For questions, please contact Student Services at 760-966-7802.

Mission Site Transition Update

In early November, the decision was made to postpone the proposed opening of a charter school of the arts for grades 7-12 as well as an arts-focused K-6 school on Oceanside Unified School District's (OUSD) Jefferson campus.

The District has met with leadership of the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) and both sides agree that they are fully committed to a partnership however due to needed environmental reviews, anticipated timeline issues, and enrollment concerns, placing a school of the arts on one of our campuses is no longer a viable option. OCSA is working to amend their current charter application and the District will continue to work with them to help ensure that our kids have access to an arts-focused educational experience in our community.


As has been stated in the past, the current model on Jefferson campus is not sustainable and needs to be reimagined. OUSD will take the remainder of this school year, and all of next school year, to plan for what Jefferson will look like in the 17/18 school year as well as what transitions may look like at Mission and Laurel. As for the 16/17 school year, there will be no changes to the existing school configurations of Jefferson, Mission and Laurel or any of our other campuses.   

OUSD looks forward to working with staff, students, families and the community on what kind of experience they would like to see at our schools in the 17/18 school year.
