The Oceanside School District is supported by State Aid, Federal Aid, income from investments, fees, etc., and a direct tax on real estate. The school budget is discussed at public hearings and submitted to the voters at the annual election. (Taxes are levied on the net budget, the difference between the gross budget and revenues received from the above-named sources, except for real estate taxes.) The district’s budget of $150,144,641 is needed for the purchasing of district supplies, materials, the payment of staff salaries and the maintenance of our buildings.
