Terms and Conditions of Use

 General Information

The Odessa Band of Distinction ("BOD") website is offered as a resource for communicating current information about the instrumental music organizations in the Odessa R-7 Schools. Information presented is updated as often as possible on a voluntary basis by band parents, through shared communication between parents, students, band directors and administrative staff directly involved with the BOD program. The website is not affiliated with the R-7 District in any way, and is not dependent on R-7 resources or funds.


Safe internet practices dictate that personally identifying information not be given when displaying photographs of students in the Band program. As such, pictures will not be accompanied by names of students at any time. If you prefer that even unidentified pictures of your students or yourselves not be displayed on the website, please contact Belinda Johnson (webmaster) at belinda@prodsol.net to have them removed. Pictures are displayed in the interest of sharing excitement about our student's accomplishments and promoting the excellent band program we all enjoy. Pictures are welcomed from any band parent who would like to share. Please contact the webmaster for additional information.

Forums Use

The Odessa Bands interactive message board ("Forums") is provided for the use of students, parents, faculty, and other interested persons directly involved with the Band program. Participants must provide a working email address on their forum registration, and children under 13 must provide parental consent to participate. Registration is free, but is moderated (requires manual approval/activation) to reduce the potential for spam and outside advertisers. Although filters are in place to prevent blatant obscenities in forum posting, it is possible that potentially questionable content may be posted in the forums. Any and all forum posts may be removed at the discretion of the administrator, for any reason and at any time, and without notification to the poster.  There are additional rules and guidelines for forum use located here.
