The Communications Office is responsible for developing, coordinating and implementing internal and external communication and public information programs for the Oceanside Unified School District. The office operates as a service department that benefits students, staff and the community by generating support for district programs, achievements, and activities that help build confidence in public education.

Services provided range from managing media relations with local, state and national news outlets, communications counseling, producing internal and external publications and providing media and customer service training and assistance to district administrators and staff.   Other functions of the Communications Office include language access services (translation and interpreting), special events and activities planning, developing informational campaigns, and serving as an internal and external source of information for the district.
