Speak Up Survey

The Speak Up Survey is an opportunity for you Students and Parents to share thought on technology usage in classrooms. Oceanside Unified School District has been participating in the Speak Up Survey. For 4 years now. We also hear from community leaders in Oceanside about the use of technology and student preparation for future success.


This survey can take up to 20 minutes to complete and gives our EdTech team invaluable insight into where we are and where we need to go in Educational Technology. Project Tomorrow is conducting National research on the use of Educational Technology and recently met with the National Education department about their findings. This information will be useful for our Educational Technology plans for OUSD.

Book Fair

The Santa Margarita Book Fair sold $6, 938.61 during the time it was open.  Thank you all so much for your support. As promised, the principal now has three promises to keep. 1. He must wear a costume, 2. He will have a pie in the face, and 3. both he and Ms. Dudley will compete in an egg challenge. (The egg challenge is when there are 12 eggs in a carton. Six are hard boiled and six are raw. You reach in and select one egg to crack on the top of your head. The challenge continues until all eggs have been used.) The egg challenge will happen at the next assembly so all students can watch.
