LCFF Benefits Verification
On a per-student basis for districts like Oceanside, there is increased funding for large concentrations of low-income, English Language Learner, and foster student populations. Therefore, we are required to establish and confirm the number of students that represent these categories. During your Aeries Registration for 2021-2022 school year, you will be prompted to enter information for household size and income. Families who qualify can request a Benefits Verification Letter through Nutrition Services.

We also have the form available in Spanish for those who prefer, please use the following link to submit your request: https://forms.gle/XUSTy9haZqbt1yvt7
Frequently Asked Questions
Where can I fill out a meal application?
With Universal Feeding continuing through the 2021-2022 school year, OUSD is not accepting meal applications. All OUSD students will eat for free regardless of income.
Why am I being asked for household size and income during Aeries registration? If all student's eat for free, why do you need this information?
Providing this information to OUSD helps bring in more funds. LCFF provides base funding for each student in a school district and supplemental funds for high-needs students—low-income students, English Learners, and children in foster care. Districts in which more than 55 percent of the student population is high needs receive additional concentration funds.
Whenever I used to fill out meal application, I would receive a letter that I could use for other services [Internet, Cable, Camp Registration Fees, Pandmic EBT Card], how can I request a letter?

Our goal is to ensure that Oceanside Unified School District's students receive the maximum amount of funds that we are eligible to receive by completing the Annual Family Information Form.
