Federal Survey Goes Home Oct. 7

Help OUSD Obtain Additional Funding

On Wednesday, Oct. 7, students will be bringing home the annual Federal Survey for parents to complete. The surveys need to be returned to school on Thursday, Oct. 8. The federal government provides funds to Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) based on the results of this survey and all OUSD students will benefit from any funds that are garnered from participation in the survey.

The survey is used to determine the number of parents in the OUSD who work or live on federal property. Federal Property includes:

• All Military Bases (Camp Pendleton, Miramar, MCRD)

• Indian Tribal Lands (including casinos)

• Immigration Offices

• Homeland Security Offices

• FBI Buildings

• Farm Land on Federal Property

• Border Patrol Offices

• Federally-subsidized Housing

• San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station

• Construction Projects on Military Bases

Thanks in advance for your timely participation in the survey. Please call 760-966-4012 if you have any questions about the survey.
