This piece provides background information on the city of Oceanside, CA to frame the community the students that Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) serves. Historically, Oceanside has had a strong military presence because of its proximity to Camp Pendleton. In the past several years, the community has worked to redefine its reputation by decreasing nightlife and supporting more family-friendly spaces. Gang violence is prevalent in Oceanside but with the help of non-profits and community partners, the city has seen drops in gang-related violence (from 49 incidents in 2009 to 19 in 2016).

Collective Impact Strategy

This document provides an overview of Oceanside’s community-wide partnership among education, government, business, nonprofits, and the overall community to support a shared vision of student success from “cradle through career.” The partnership uses a collective impact framework in which a range of community organizations commit to strategizing, implementing, and engaging in efforts to guide every student from kindergarten readiness through post-secondary success. The document outlines the common agenda and goals for the Oceanside promise: increasing kindergarten readiness, increasing third grade literacy; growing the percentage of students receiving a grade of “C” or better in A-G coursework; improving the percentage of students meeting A-G requirements; elevating the percentage of students obtaining post-secondary success; and promoting safety, health, and well-being. It also includes core indicators of progression toward each goal.
