Public Comment at Board Meetings
We welcome hearing from OCS parents. OCS Board of Trustee meetings begin at 6:30 pm and provide for up to 30 minutes of Public Comment time just after the commencement of each meeting. If you are an OCS parent that is interested in addressing the Board, we ask that one week prior you please email either the Head of School or Board Chair (email@example.com) stating your name, grades of your children and the topic of your comments. This allows us to properly allocate time to our agenda for that evening.
Scheduled board meetings can be found on the OCS School Calendar.
