Parent Room

Our Parent Room is a great resource for parents and families. The parent room has a "Parent Library Bookshelf" with many self help books and videos that may be checked out. We have a phone that may be used for local calls and a computer with internet access. Policy Council Meeting Minutes, as well as Board of Directors Meeting Minutes, are posted on the Parent Room bulletin board.

The parent room is located in OCDC's main building located at 2307 East Capitol Avenue in Pierre, SD.  The Parent Room is next to the front desk, Room 117 and is available for use Monday through Friday during school hours.
