08-09-2016 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #14


Title
Amend the Contracts for Odyssey Charter and Odyssey Preparatory Academy

Discussion
Currently Odyssey Charter School, Inc. operates three charter schools in Brevard: Odyssey Charter, Odyssey Preparatory Academy, and Orion Preparatory Academy (Fall 2016). Each of the three schools has its own charter contract though they share the same Governing Board. As each of these charters were executed separately from one another, there is language that has caused an issue with composition of the Governing Board as well as the number and location of meetings held annually. The amendment will thereby ensure that the sub-sections guiding the Governance and make-up of the Governing Board of the three separate contracts are commensurate with each other. The current language of the Orion Preparatory Charter contract under the Governance Section 9 has been attached. The contract in its entirety is available in the Division of Equity, Innovation and Choice for review if needed.

Recommendation
Recommend to approve the amendment of Odyssey Charter and Odyssey Preparatory Academy contracts to reflect the changes in Governance Section (9) to be consistent with the language in Orion Preparatory Academy's contract.
