Last night the Odyssey Charter School Board approved the creation of a ninth grade class for the 2016-17 school year. It also reaffirmed its commitment to build out a high school one grade per year, creating a complete 9th-12th grade program in the year 2019-2020. This is wonderful news for the Odyssey community, especially those families who hope to continue with our school and also the many new applicants seeking admission to Odyssey.
A seat will be held for our current eighth grade students in good standing. However, in order to gauge parent interest and availability of seats, the school administration will be reaching out to the ninth grade parent community to confirm intentions for next year. More information is forthcoming regarding the process for securing your studentsí seats.
This is a remarkable opportunity to take a lead role in the creation of our new high school. Students and families who engage in this process will have a voice in developing the academic programs and extracurricular activities offered to our students. We look forward to providing your family members with a full continuum of academic excellence from kindergarten through high school graduation.
There is updated information on our website about the choice process and our lottery. If you have additional questions, please feel free to reach out to one of the administrators at the school.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy and joyous holiday season.
