Pre-Launch Back Office Services
Your EdTec finance manager and support team will work with you in your planning year to get back office operations up and running in preparation for the first day of school. During this time, we provide you with necessary forms and instructions, and share the EdTec Charter Operations Book, or ECO Book, which includes important information we’ve gathered over the last 17 years on new school set-up, operational best practices, compliance and board governance.
SIS Selection/SIS Strategy
Choosing the right student information system (SIS) is an important decision, as your staff will use this system on a daily basis for key attendance and reporting tasks. Our data experts walk you through the details of various systems and help you to choose the one that is right for your school, and then work with you throughout the setup process.
An active, informed board is an important piece of every charter school’s success. Board development training is available through EdTec’s back-office services and through our partner, social impact consulting firm Third Plateau, to support, design, and train boards of directors to prepare them to be effective and efficient stewards of their school’s mission, vision, and values. This training takes many different forms (as we customize our approach for each organization), including board retreats and workshops; board mentoring, coaching, and leadership development; and implementing board recruitment strategy.
