    SB Meetings  
    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 pm at Oak Park High School Presentation Room G9, unless otherwise indicated(via teleconference during school closures due to COVID19). Upcoming meeting dates and agendas can be found below. Meeting Agendas for a Regular meeting are posted electronically on this page of the district website(During COVID19 School Closures). For special accommodation or questions, please contact Ragini Aggarwal, Executive Assistant at raggarwal@opusd.org, or call 818-735-3206. 
     
    Pursuant to executive order N-29-20, the board of education meetings are being held via teleconference/videoconference. To find out how you may electronically attend the board meeting and provide public comment, please read the following guidelines:

    Members of the public will have the right to observe the meeting using a link posted with the Agenda or at www.opusd.org/livestream.

    Public Comments may be submitted via this public comment form at www.opusd.org/publiccomments. At a Regular Meeting, public comments may be submitted regarding a matter on the agenda or within the board’s jurisdiction via the form accessed on the meeting day. Although not required, please submit all of the requested information.  In keeping with the reasonable time regulations described below, every effort will be made for your name and comment to be read by the Board President, and your comment will be placed into the item’s record at the Board meeting. Comments on a matter related to an item on the Agenda may be submitted prior to the meeting and during the meeting using the above link. At a Special Meeting, public comments must be restricted to matters on the Agenda. 

    This public comment form will be open to members of the public 30 minutes prior to the public meeting, which begins at the time posted on the agenda and will close when the meeting ends. This form will take the place of the “yellow speaker cards” available at in-person meetings.

    The President of the Board will inquire if anyone in the audience desires to address the board on the regular meeting agenda or the special board meeting. Individual speakers will be allowed three minutes(approximately 250 words) to address the Board on each agenda or non-agenda item(for a Special Board meeting, the comment must be pertaining to items on the agenda). The Board shall limit the total time for public input on each item to 20 minutes. With Board consent, the Board president may increase or decrease the time allowed for public comments, depending on the topic and the number of persons wishing to be heard. Due to this meeting's electronic nature and to maintain the integrity of providing an opportunity for public comment, every effort will be made to read your comment into the record. To ensure that non-English speakers receive the same opportunity to address the Board directly, Google Translate will be used to translate any emails to the Superintendent’s Executive Assistant at raggarwal@opusd.org will receive and submit the public comments in open session. 

    Your comments are greatly appreciated. However, regarding comments that are not on the agenda, the Board cannot enter into a formal discussion at this time, nor can a decision be made.  Matters warranting discussion may be placed on a future agenda.   Thank you for your cooperation and compliance with these guidelines.
