    The Ontario-Montclair School District (OMSD) Board of Trustees usually meets on the first and third Thursday of each month for its regular sessions. Meetings begin at 5:30 p.m. and are usually held in the Central Language Academy Auditorium, 415 East "G" Street, Ontario. For specific dates and information, phone (909) 418-6445 or refer to the agenda. All regular and Special Board meetings are open to the public.

    While the Board of Trustees continues to hold meetings to conduct essential business during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in accordance with Governor Newsom’s Executive Order, ordering Californians to shelter in place and banning public gatherings, members of the public may not attend the Board meetings in person. Public participation in the meetings will be electronic. Members of the public may listen to OMSD Board meetings in real time simulcast.

    The changes in public participation will begin at the Board of Trustees meeting on Thursday, April 16, 2020 and will continue until further notice. In addition, the remote site locations at Central Language Academy will not be open to the public.

    The Board continues to value and encourage members of the public to make public comments during its meetings. Staff will read aloud the emails received for public comment according to the procedures below. Comments should be brief and designed to be read in five minutes or less, with total comments being twenty minutes or less per topic of discussion. In order to ensure your entire message is read, the Board request messages be contained to no more than 700 words. This will allow for additional public participation on any one topic. Any comments exceeding that length will be forwarded to Board Members and are available for public inspection upon request. Please remember that comments on items not listed on the agenda cannot be responded to during the meeting, but Board Members carefully listen to those comments and those comments often become part of the discussion of future Board meetings when they can be listed on the agenda. Members of the public who wish to comment during the Board meeting should use the following means:
