About the program

About one-third of our students enroll in Oceanside schools knowing little or no English. In keeping with our mission to educate every student for success in the global community, we are pleased to offer four programs taught by teachers specially trained to address the needs of English learners. Students with minimal English skills enroll in our Structured English Immersion Program, where instruction is primarily in English and designed to help students learn English as rapidly as possible while giving them special assistance in math, science and history.

English Learner Programs

The English Learners Master Plan explains the various program options for English learners. We are proud to offer our English learners the following educational pathways:

  1. Structured English Immersion Program (SEI)

  2. Two Way Bilingual Immersion Program (TWBI)

Through the SEI Program students develop grade-level English skills while also having access to grade-level curriculum. English Learners receive English Language Development (ELD) as well as instruction in all content areas such as math, science, history and physical education. English Learners receive ELD from a certificated teacher until they meet our criteria to be reclassified as Fluent English Proficient.

Two Way Bilingual Immersion Master plan

The Oceanside Unified School District’s Two Way Bilingual Immersion Program Master Plan will guide the development of Oceanside Unified School District’s Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program and lay the groundwork for the development of a K-12 pathway that affords students the opportunity to develop their bilingualism and literacy in two languages. In its strategic goals, Oceanside Unified School District (OUSD) promotes the preparation of students for full participation and success in a global society that is multilingual and multicultural.

The OUSD multi-site Two-Way Bilingual Immersion program nurtures a vibrant K-12 learning community in which students from diverse backgrounds speak, read and write in Spanish and participate in multicultural studies and experiences as part of their education.

The program’s goals for students are:

  • Bilingualism and Biliteracy
  • Academic Excellence
  • Cross-cultural understanding & development of pro-social skills

As with any other District program, actions taken through the implementation of this plan that have significant fiscal impact on the general fund shall be considered by the Board of Directors and the Superintendent for development and approval.
