My mole in the Delaware charter school community has informed me Odyssey Charter School Headmaster Dr. Nick Manolakos has applied for the position of Head of School at Providence Creek Academy in Clayton, DE. This would be an interesting move for Manolakos. Does this mean all Providence Creek kids will be required to learn Greek? From the parents I know at this school, they will be less than thrilled at that prospect!
From the Odyssey Charter School PTO Facebook page, there is now a Move On petition to renew Manolakos’ contract at Odyssey. So I went to check the link, and sure enough, there it is: http://petitions.moveon.org/sign/renew-dr-manolakos-ocs?source=c.em.mt&r_by=12008808
Renew Dr. Manolakos’ OCS Employment Contract
To be delivered to OCS School Board
The Parents of Odyssey Charter School strongly urge that the Odyssey School Board renew Dr. Nick Manolakos’ employment contract immediately. The OCS Parents want to ensure Dr. Manolakos remains the leader of our school as we grow into a full K-12 school.
There are currently 284 signatures. NEW goal – We need 300 signatures!

Amazing how he even was awarded this job when he has an offensive touching charge from Skyline Middle and was put at A I as a locker boy to unlock lockers for 2. Years.
It amazes me that his practices of poor leadership and bad practices lasted as long as they did. As a building level Principal, he is serves as an example as how not to lead a school. I commend the OCS Board of Directors on their move but wonder what took them so long.
This post was from three years ago. He is still at Odyssey.
