Mark your calendars for this Thursday’s meeting! We’ll be discussing the draft complaint resolution strategy and the school council training day. We’ll also be listing opportunities on various OCASC committees–a fabulous way to get involved.

  • the position of chair (or co-chair) that still needs to be filled;
