SECOND CAMPUS UPDATE

As you are aware, OCS learned in early March that our anticipated approval by the CA State Board of Education to open a second campus for the 2017-2018 school year was denied.  Therefore. we are unale to proceed with opening a second campus location for the 2017-2018 school year.  

While this news was disappointing, we remain committed to achieving our goal of opening a second TK-8 school within the boundaries of Pasadena Unified School District for the 2018-2019 school year.  A requirement for our petition submittal is to obtain over 150 meaningful interested families in our second school campus.  We hope you remain interested in enrollment at Odyssey Charter School and support our new petition by attending one of the below information meetings.  If you have a student that will be entering Transitional Kindergarten through 3rd grade in the 2018-2019 school year, please come and sign that you are meaningfully interested in attending a new school should approval to open occur.  

If you are interested, please join us in learning about our New Charter Petition on one of the following dates:

  • Wednesday, August 9, 2017 at 5:30pm
  • Saturday, August 12, 2017 at 9:00am
  • Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 9:00am 

Once we acquire the necessary signatures, we will be able to submit the New Charter Petition to the Pasadena Unified School District for their approval consideration.  When the New Charter Petition has been approved we can begin the application process for enrolllment.  We will keep you updated on the process and if successful we hope to hold enrollment tours for our second campus in January 2018.

For any related updates, please visit our website periodically.
