Appearing as a guest at a regular meeting
The Board of Trustees welcomes constructive input from the public during Board meetings. People can appear as a delegation or present at a public session. In recognition of our Catholic values and standards of decorum, civility and propriety, guidelines have been created to promote an atmosphere of dignity and respect. Guests will be informed on the guidelines prior to the start of the Board meeting.
How to present during the public session portion
Guests can address the Board during the public session portion of a meeting. Guest presenters are asked to sign in at least ten minutes before the start of the 7:00 pm meeting. Presenters will be asked to come forward in order of names appearing on the sign-in sheet. Other guests of the meeting (who are not presenting) should remain seated behind the presentation table. Each presenter is provided a maximum of three minutes for their presentation. If necessary, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for an extension of presentation time.
How to appear as a delegation at a meeting
Delegations can be made up of a maximum of two people. Each delegation will be given five minutes to speak at the meeting. The reason for the delegation, the names of the presenters, and copies of their presentations will be published in the meeting agenda and minutes. There is a maximum of two delegations allowed at each meeting. If necessary, the Chairperson has the discretion to allow for additional presenters or an extension of presentation time. Complete a Delegation Registration Form and submit it no later than seven dates before the meeting. Email the form to Corporate.Affairs@ocsb.ca or mail it to 570 West Hunt Club Road, Nepean, ON K2G 3R4.

The Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE) partnership
The Ottawa Network for Education (ONFE) partners with all four school boards in Ottawa and works alongside Teachers to meet the needs of students in both official languages. Heather Norris, President and CEO of ONFE attended the January 14, 2020 OCSB Board Meeting to outline the impact ONFE is having on OCSB students. ONFE currently delivers 77 programs across 56 OCSB schools.
ONFE’s School Breakfast Program is available in 53 OCSB Schools. Twenty-three hundred OCSB students benefit from this program daily. In total, ONFE’s breakfast and snack programs operate in 193 Ottawa schools, providing over 13,500 nutritious meals to students. That represents over 2.5 million meals per year!
