02-11-2014 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #25


Title
Recommend the Approval of Odyssey Space Coast Charter Academy Contract

Discussion

Florida State Statutes dictate that the terms and conditions for the operations of a charter school shall be set forth by the Sponsor and the applicant in a written contractual agreement, called a charter.  Harold Bistline, Board Attorney, was involved in the contract negotiation process.

Odyssey Space Coast Charter Academy charter application was approved by a ruling the Fifth District Court of Appeals on November 12, 2013.  The charter school is scheduled to open during the 2014-2015 school year, however the location of the school has yet to be determined. Pursuant to contractual language this contract shall be automatically rescinded with no notice or further action required of the Sponsor if Odyssey Space Coast Charter Academy fails to open by the 2015-2016 school year. 



Recommendation

Approve the charter contract for Odyssey Space Coast Charter Academy.
