Governing Board

Oglethorpe Charter School is governed by an autonomous, non-profit board of directors and receives flexibility from certain state and local rules and regulations in exchange for a higher level of accountability.  In the event that you should ever feel the need to contact a governing board member, the established protocol is to first contact Mr. Wall, the Principal of OCS.  Mr. Wall can be contacted at (912) 313-3840 or  Mr. Wall will provide your contact information to the appropriate governing board member or members.
