Board Elections - May 2013. Click here for more on the candidates.
All business and affairs of Odyssey Charter School are managed under the direction of the Board of Trustees through a set of clear and concise written policies. The Board of Trustees consists of seven officers. OCS parents vote in elections to replace board officers who have reached the ends of their terms.

Odyssey's Board of Trustees has adopted a form of oversight called Policy Governance. Policy Governance®, an integrated board leadership paradigm created by Dr. John Carver, is a groundbreaking model of governance designed to empower boards of directors to fulfill their obligation of accountability for the organizations they govern. It provides a clear differentiation between governance and management responsibilities in organizations.

When are Board of Trustees Meetings Held?
Board of Trustees Meetings are held on the 2nd Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm (unless otherwise noticed).
These meetings are held at the school (738 E. Quality Dr. (700 South), American Fork, Utah 84003).
Who may attend Board of Trustees Meetings?
Parents are invited and encouraged to attend Board Meetings! We welcome and value parent input as Odyssey is dependent on the energy and experience of our parents and volunteers. We recommend parents attend at least one board meeting each year as a way to stay connected with the school and its issues. If you are unable to attend a meeting or would otherwise like to review the meetings' minutes, copies are available by request at the front office or by contacting Russell Schellhous. Agendas for each Board Meeting will be posted at the front office before each meeting.
