Services are provided only upon identification of education needs of the student. Anyone wishing to refer a student attending Odyssey Academy in kindergarten through ninth grade this school year is asked to go by the student’s campus office and request a copy of the referral form or download the form online. Those unable to go by the school should call February 18th to request a form be sent to them. This form must be returned to the school by March 1st.
