Title
Permission for Odyssey of the Mind (OM) teams to Travel to World Finals, University of Maryland

Discussion

Three (3) Brevard County public school teams qualified for the Odyssey of the Mind World Finals at the University of Maryland, May 31 - June 3, 2008.  We are very proud of the teams of Sunrise Elementary School, Bayside High School and Eau Gallie High School.  Adult coaches and chaperones will accompany the students.  Housing arrangements are being made through the OM program and the University of Maryland, College Park, MD.

We ask that this item be presented to the Board once for Consent without Prior Information due to time constraints in planning for this trip.

Approve the request to travel to Odyssey of the Mind World Finals from May 31 - June 3, 2008 at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland.
