Board of Education policy requires the annual establishment of Cayucos residency to attend Cayucos Elementary School District. “The Superintendent/Principal or designee shall annually verify the student’s residency and retain a copy of the document or written statement offered as verification in the student’s mandatory permanent record. (5 CCR 432).” This verification will take place annually. In order to comply with this policy we are requiring all families to submit one of the following as residency verification: waste disposal bill, telephone bill, water bill, gas bill, cable/TV bill, PG&E bill and one of the following for residence verification: rental contract, property tax statement or a verification of shared residence (letter). Verification of residency will be required annually at registration time.

Common Core State Standards
Cayucos Elementary is currently reviewing the Common Core State Standards with both faculty and staff. Our district Teacher on Special Assignment (TOSA), Sterling Heck recently presented information about the standards to the board, parents, faculty and staff. Our district along with all other districts in the state are currently preparing for implementation. If you have question about our district's progress, please contact Mr. Heck at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) were developed through a state-led initiative to establish consistent and clear education standards for English language arts and mathematics that would better prepare students for success in college, career, and the competitive global economy. The California State Board of Education (SBE) adopted the standards on August 2, 2010. Visit the adoption process Web page to learn more about the process.
Current School Enrollment is 226 students in grades K-8
Interdistrict Transfers Include:
2 from Coast Unified
17 from San Luis Coastal Unified
4 from Atascadero Unified
New Teacher Induction Program
Mr. Heck will continue to provide support post retirement for our new teachers in conjunction with the California New Teacher Induction Program called Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment (BTSA). This program is coordinated through the County Education Office.
