2015/16 LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan)

The Oceanside Unified School District is in the process of updating its Local Control and Accountability Plan, or LCAP. As part of the planning process OUSD is seeking input from local parents, guardians, students, teachers and staff.


Ivey Ranch held our community forum in the Ivey Ranch Multipurpose Room on Monday, February 1st, 2016.  Providing the community with a stake in the success of our schools and the opportunity to participate in the process of updating the LCAP is essential in making decisions that best serve the needs of our students.


If you were unable to attend our community forum on February 1st, you can find more information about the LCAP and provide input by completing an online survey at www.oside.us.  Paper copies will also be available in the school office.  We hope you are able to complete the online or paper survey, as your input and feedback is critical to the success of our schools and in helping all our students become college and career ready.

Safety First, Convenience Second!  ThinkActBe.jpg

Procedures for drop off and dismissal: 

  • As always, please allow common courtesy and the importance of safety for all children to be our guide.
  • If you wish to walk your child to classrooms, please park off campus either in the Martin Luther King, Jr. park parking lot or on the streets near school.  Parking is not available in the staff parking lot. 
  • Morning drop off by carline at the white curb in front of the school is available everyday for all students.  Please pull forward to allow as many cars as possible to unload students efficiently at the white curb.  Be prepared for drop off only once you reach the drop off portion of the carline.
  • Please Do Not Stop, Wait, or Park in the bike lane on Mesa Drive.
  • Dismissal at 3:35 for grades 1 through 5 is held at the back gate of the school.   Dismissal for kindergarten only (and siblings) is at the front of the school.  Children are released to parents after contact is made. 
  • Remember dismissal for grades 1-5 is the back gate, kindergarten (and siblings) only in front.

Thanks again for your help in making the Ivey Ranch family so great!

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:
