    All Oak Park Board of Education meetings are open to the public, and all Board business takes place in public except for discussion on some specific topics where the Board meets in Closed Session. Closed Session agenda items are announced in public and then discussed with only Board members and District staff present. Closed Sessions are permitted by law and held in accordance with the state Open Meeting laws to allow Board Members to discuss confidential legal, personnel, and collective bargaining matters. Most of the official business of the Board is conducted during regularly scheduled meetings on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:00 p.m. at Oak Park High School Presentation Room G9 unless otherwise indicated. Upcoming meeting dates and agendas can be found below. Meeting Agendas for meetings are posted electronically on this page of the district website.

    Public Notices

    Notice of Sunshine Article 3 & 13 OPCA


  • PUBLIC COMMENTS - MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC MUST ATTEND THE BOARD MEETING IN PERSON TO SUBMIT A COMMENT

    The President of the Board will inquire if there are any public comments with respect to any item appearing on the regular meeting agenda or on any issue within the jurisdiction of the Governing Board.  Individual speakers will be allowed three minutes to address the Board on each agenda or non-agenda item. 


    This OPUSD School Board Meeting is a meeting held in public, but it is not a public meeting. In other words, the public and the media are free to watch the board work, but please note the board will not be engaging in a discussion with members of the public. 


    At every regular Board Meeting, there is an opportunity for public comment on Agenda and non-Agenda items. The public also has an opportunity to provide comments at a special board meeting, but the comments must be related to items on the agenda. Anyone wishing to comment must fill out a speaker card at the meeting. Speaker cards are available in the Board Room and must be completed and handed to Ragini Aggarwal, Communications Coordinator/Executive Assistant, prior to the beginning of the meeting. In order to ensure that non-English speakers receive the same opportunity to directly address the Board, any member of the public who utilizes a translator shall be provided at least twice the allotted time to address the Board unless simultaneous translation equipment is used to allow the Board to hear the translated public testimony simultaneously. (Government Code 54954.3)


    According to our Board Bylaws, individual comments are limited to 3 minutes, and public input on any topic is limited to a total of 20 minutes.  However, with Board consent, the Board president may elect to increase these limits on a particular topic.


    During the meeting, the board will listen but will not respond to public comments. If it is determined that a response is needed to comment on an agendized item, it will come after the board has had time to deliberate the issue, seek additional information, or take recommendations from the Superintendent or Staff. If necessary, the Board may ask questions for clarification.


    Please know that all comments are important to us. Thank you for your cooperation and compliance with these guidelines.
