• CHAIN OF COMMUNICATION

    We know there are times when issues come up that need to be resolved. OUSD has created a chain of communication that allows for an efficient resolution process. Please read below to see who to contact first if you have an issue you would like to address.

    Chain of Communication for Oceanside Unified

    Who do I call with a question or suggestion?

    The Oceanside Unified School District has developed communication protocols  to promote direct, open and respectful interactions so that problems and  concerns can be worked out quickly and efficiently.  

    The community communication protocol starts with the staff member closest to  the situation, as that person will usually have the most information. At times,  additional personnel are required to resolve specific situations. Appropriate  communication channels for a variety of topics are listed below.
