Impact Aid

Oceanside Unified School District is funded by local taxes. However, due to the large federal presence in our area and the tax exemptions available to federally-connected personnel, businesses, and agencies; OUSD is eligible to apply for Federal Impact Aid funds.

Impact Aid is a federal program designed to assist local school districts that enroll federally connected students.

Federally connected students are those whose guardians:

  • Work on federal property or Indian land
  • Live on federal property or Indian land
  • Are active duty military personnel

The impact Aid Program funds are used for a wide variety of expenses including purchasing computers and equipment, teacher and aide salaries, and special enrichment programs. Everyone benefits from this survey.

Last fiscal year, over $3,000,000 was added to our general operating budget.

Impact Aid forms will be sent home with your student on October 2nd and should be returned to the school by the end of the week, but can still be submitted later. Your assistance in completing the Impact Aid survey card is greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Cathy Roldan at 760-966-4013.
