Title
Recommend the Renewal of the Odyssey Charter School Contract

Discussion

Odyssey became a charter school in Brevard County in 1999 and received a 10-year renewal charter contract in 2002.  The current contract will expire on June 30, 2012.

Odyssey Charter School was determined by the Commissioner of Education to be a "high performing" charter school on July 26, 2011.  Pursuant to Section 1002.331(2)(e), F.S., a high-performing charter school is authorized  to receive a 15-year charter renewal. 

A summary highlighting the key information and/or activities relevant to the recommendation is attached.
