    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 with Board members and some staff attending in person. The Board room is closed to the public at this time. 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 open session section of the meeting using a link posted with the Agenda or at www.opusd.org/livestream.

    Public comments may be provided using one of the following options:

    SUBMIT PUBLIC COMMENTS IN ADVANCE OF THE MEETING VIA THE ONLINE COMMENT FORM
    Public Comments may be submitted via this link www.opusd.org/PublicComments. If you wish to make a comment regarding a matter on the agenda or within the board’s jurisdiction, please submit your comment via the form accessed by the above link before 6:00 p.m. on April 20, 2021. 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. If your comment is on a non-agenda item but within the subject matter jurisdiction of the Board the comment will be read aloud at the beginning of the meeting. If the comment is on a specific Agenda Item, the comment will be read at the time the item is called. 

    This public comment form will be open to members of the public 2 hours (at 3:00 pm) prior to the closed session of the public meeting which begins at 5:00 pm and will close at 6:00 pm.
    This form will take the place of the “yellow speaker cards” available at in-person meetings.

    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 or 250 words to address the Board on each agenda or non-agenda item. 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 presentation, depending on the topic and the number of persons wishing to be heard. Due to the electronic nature of this meeting and to maintain the integrity of providing an opportunity for public comment, every effort will be made to read your comment into the record. In order to ensure that non-English speakers receive the same opportunity to directly address the Board, Google Translate will be used to translate any emails to the Superintendent’s Executive Assistant and Communications Coordinator at raggarwal@opusd.org who will receive and submit the public comments in open session.

    E-MAIL PUBLIC COMMENTS DURING THE MEETING TO BE READ ALOUD
    After the form has closed and the meeting has started members of the public have the opportunity to submit a comment on a specific item on the agenda before it is heard or as it is being heard. Please submit your comment, limited to 250 words or less, to Ragini Aggarwal, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent and Communications Coordinator at raggarwal@opusd.org. Please include in the Subject Line of your e-mail both the Agenda item number (e.g., Item No. C.2.a) and if you would like your name to be read aloud. An email confirmation will be sent to you asking if you wish the comment to be “Read at the Meeting”. Once you confirm via return email the comment will be shared with the Board at the discretion of the Board President, if time allows, your comment may be read aloud as long as the item is still under discussion. 

    All comments received before and during the meeting will be shared with the board and become part of the record of public comments for that meeting and will be posted along with the Agenda on our website after the meeting.   

    All Board Actions and Discussions are electronically recorded and maintained for thirty days.  Interested parties may review the recording upon request. Upon request by a student's parent/guardian, or by the student if age 18 or older, the minutes shall not include the student's or parent/guardian's address, telephone number, date of birth, or email address, or the student's name or other directory information as defined in Education Code 49061. The request to exclude such information shall be made in writing to the secretary or clerk of the Board. (Education Code 49073.2)

    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.
