Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) For the 2016-17 School Year Green Zone: January 4, 2016 – March 31, 2016

The Oceanside Unified School District Board of Education maintains its commitment to provide educational choices to families to meet the diverse needs of all students. The district’s Open Enrollment School of Choice (SOC) Policy (5116.1) is regulated by space availability.


The following schools are capped for the 2016-17 school year due to enrollment being at capacity:  El Camino High School, King Middle School, Ivey Ranch and Foussat Elementary Schools.  Only those applicants eligible for priority “C” (sibling), “D” (feeder pattern), or “E” (parent/guardian is an OUSD employee at requested site) will be allowed to apply for these capped schools. 

Green Zone applications will only be available at the Educational Support Services Office at 2080 Mission Ave in Oceanside.


  • If your child is currently on a SOC and will remain at the same school next year—there is no need to reapply. 
  • If your child is currently in entering kindergarten, 6th or 9th grade, you need to apply for a SOC for the 2016-17 school year if you want your child to attend a school other than their school of residence.
  • Only applications received during Green Zone will be considered in the first round lottery process for School of Choice placement.  This is not a first come, first served arrangement… all applications date stamped within Green Zone are given the same consideration within their priority categories.
  • NO e-mails or faxes will be accepted.
  • Two forms of address verification must be presented with the application. Acceptable proofs of address are current utility bills, cable bill, rental agreement or mortgage statement.  If these forms of verification are not in your name, a completed Shared Residency form will be required.
  • Parents will be notified by the last school day in May through U.S. Mail that their application has been approved, denied, or placed on a wait list.  Please do not call to check on the progress of your application before that time, as answering these calls takes away from our time to process applications.
  • Transportation is not provided for any student approved for School Of Choice.

For questions or concerns regarding SOC, please contact:

Educational Support Services
Student Services Department
2080 Mission Ave - Oceanside CA  92058
(760) 966-7849 or (760) 966-7802

School Uniforms for the 2015-2016 School Year

  • White, gray, light blue or navy shirt or blouse with a collar and long or short sleeves, or school Laurel Lion t-shirt      
  • Navy blue or Khaki pants, shorts, skort, skirt, or jumper
  • Navy sweater or sweatshirt, or school sweatshirt         
  • White socks are recommended

I would like to thank all the parents that supported our school uniform policy we reinstated in January. While last year, we were flexible with students and families that did not wear their uniforms. This year, we will expect each child to wear their uniform every day. Students that wear their uniforms regularly will earn privileges and rewards throughout the year. However, students that choose not to wear the uniforms on a regular basis will lose privileges such attending class field trips. Our school community partner, the Assistance League of North County, will once again provide free uniforms for families in need this year. 

Quisiera agradecer a todos los padres que apoyaron nuestro reglamento de uniforme escolar que reestablecimos en Enero. Mientras el año pasado fuimos flexible con estudiantes y familias que no usaron su uniforme. Este año, esperaremos que cada niño/a use su uniforme cada día. Estudiantes que usan sus uniformes regularmente ganaran privilegios y premios a través del año. Sin embargo, estudiantes que eligen no usar los uniformes regularmente perderán privilegios tales como asistir a paseos escolares. Nuestro compañero comunitario escolar, la Assistance League of North County, volverá a nuevamente proveer uniformes gratis a familias en necesidad este año.

Below are a few of many benefits school reports and studies have shown associated with school uniforms:

  • Uniforms reduce tardiness and increase attendance.
  • Uniforms reduce suspensions and discipline referrals among students.
  • Uniforms increase school pride, unity, and a renewed commitment to the school.
  •  Uniforms promote a more professional tone at school, encouraging students to take their studies more seriously. 
  • Uniforms at school also reduce the prevalence of violence.

Uniforms promote school safety and enhance the learning environment, and diminish the clothing competition reducing bullying.

Debajo hay unos cuantos de los beneficios que han demostrado reportes escolares y estudios asociados con uniformes escolares:

  • Uniformes reducen tardanzas y aumentan ausencias.
  • Uniformes reducen suspensiones y referencias de disciplina entre estudiantes.
  • Uniformes aumentan orgullo escolar, unidad, y un compromiso renovado a la escuela.
  • Uniformes promocionan un tono más profesional a la escuela, animando a estudiantes a tomar sus estudios más seriamente. 
  • Uniformes en la escuela también reducen la prevalencia de violencia.
