Strategic Communications Plan
Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) provides significant educational value and enrichment to the Oceanside community. However, district leadership has been concerned for quite some time that the success and accomplishments of students and the district are not effectively communicated to both internal and external stakeholders.
To address this concern, OUSD launched a comprehensive communications research effort to determine the effectiveness of the district’s communication with its most important audiences and key stakeholders.
Below is the 2-year OUSD Strategic Communications Plan and the presentation to the board on the research findings.
