About Us


Welcome to our district website and thank you for inquiring about the San Luis Coastal Unified School District.

SLCUSD represents the communities of Avila, Edna Valley, Los Osos, Morro Bay, and San Luis Obispo and currently has an enrollment of nearly 8,000 students. Small neighborhood schools are a hallmark of the district where students are educated from preschool through twelfth grade. Our world-class adult school program offers unique, life-improving courses to thousands of people in our community as well. Students thrive in San Luis Coastal because we have dedicated parents, teachers, support staff, administrators, and a Board of Education that is stable and focused on student success.

Our community overwhelmingly supported the passage of a facility bond program in 2014. The next several years will be dedicated to the modernization of our two comprehensive high schools, Morro Bay High and San Luis Obispo High schools. In addition, we will enhance all of our other school sites to ensure the facilities are maintained to a high level of safety and cleanliness. We are extremely grateful for the support given to us by our generous community.

We are proud of our school district and look forward to a future of continued excellence in education. Please take a look around. I know you’ll be impressed.

Employee Code of Conduct

Beginning January 1, 2018, AB 500 requires school districts to post the district code of conduct for employees on each of its schools' web sites. Below you will find the Educator Code of Conduct for our district.

This code of conduct guides professional conduct with professional and ethical implications. It embraces the fundamental belief that the student is the foremost reason for the existence of the profession. Professional educators promote the development of character and civic responsibility of learners to explore ideas, to develop skills, and to acquire knowledge necessary to be contributing members of society.

#1: Equity

Professional educators advocate for the practice of equity by assuring equal access to educational opportunities for each individual. They recognize and address the uniqueness of each student and provide the appropriate educational supports and personalization of the educational experience.

#2: Mutual Respect

Professional educators respect the inherent dignity and worth of each individual. Educators deal considerately and justly with each student and seek to resolve problems.

#3: Diversity

Professional educators promote and respect diverse cultures by honoring and valuing individual differences and supporting the strengths of all individuals. They have the responsibility to present facts and provide access to all points of view without distortion, bias, or personal prejudice.

#4: Integrity

Professional educators behave in a trustworthy manner by ensuring confidentiality, demonstrating honesty, and maintaining a professional relationship with students at all times. They follow generally recognized professional standards and exercise sound professional judgment
