Ouachita Parish School Board is a school district headquartered in Monroe, Louisiana, United States.

The district serves Ouachita Parish except for areas within the City of Monroe; those areas are instead served by the Monroe City School System.

Neal Lane "Lanny" Johnson, the superintendent for the Franklin Parish School Board in Winnsboro is a former superintendent in Ouachita Parish. Johnson also served in the Louisiana House of Representatives from 1976-1980. He was defeated in a bid for the State Senate in the 1979 nonpartisan blanket primary. Dan Richey, then of Ferriday, won the seat after Johnson, a Democrat, was eliminated in the primary.

One of the former members of the Ouachita Parish School Board was the Monroe native Marc Swayze, a comic book artist and writer.[1]Still another former member is Charles Anding, a state representative from House District 15 in West Monroe from 1988 to 1996.[2]

Beginning in 2015, the OPSB will resume ownership of the Chennault Aviation and Military Museum in Monroe. Board president Jerry Richard Hicks is also a member of the museum directors and will work with museum operator Nell Martien Calloway in needed fund-raising projects.[3]
