04-09-2013 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #44


Title
Recommmend the Approval of Odyssey Preparatory Charter Academy Charter Contract

Discussion

Florida State Statutes dictate that the terms and conditions for the operation 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.

The Odyssey Preparatory Charter Academy charter application was approved by the Board on September 25, 2012.  The charter school is scheduled to open during the 2013-2014 school year and will be located at 1350 Wyoming Dr. S.E., Palm Bay, Florida (former Patriot facility).  Pursuant to contractual language, this contract shall be automatically rescinded with no notice or further action required of the Sponsor if Odyssey Preparatory Charter Academy fails to open by the 2014-2015 school year.
