Connect with EdTec at the 2024 GCSA Conference!

EdTec is proud to be a sponsor, exhibitor, and presenter at the 2024 Georgia Charter Schools Association Conference! The conference takes place in Atlanta from March 11-13, 2024.

EdTec is a Platinum Sponsor and will have a booth in the corridor outside of the exhibit hall. We encourage you to stop by to meet our team and learn more about how we support Georgia charter schools with charter startup, back office, grant writing, and more.

EdTec staff, along with partner schools, will present two breakout sessions. We’re looking forward to this opportunity to share our expertise with charter developers, new schools, and established schools!

Breakout Sessions

Tuesday, March 12

Should I Have a Back Office Partner? | 9:30 am – 10:30 pm | Cumberland Ballroom – Salon D

  • Charter schools face unique challenges, balancing educational excellence with efficient operations. Enter the gig economy’s back-office service providers, offering a tempting proposition: specialized expertise without the expense of full-time staff. But is this silver bullet too good to be true? Join EdTec and one of our back office clients to explore benefits of the charter school-back office partnership, such as expertise, cost savings, scalability, and flexibility

Wednesday, March 13

What Charter Schools Can Learn from the Barbie Movie’s Marketing Strategy | 11:05 am – 12:05 pm | Cumberland Ballroom – Salon C

  • Even those who haven’t seen the movie would recognize that shade of Barbie pink anywhere! There are important lessons from the blockbuster hit’s marketing strategy that can be applied to almost any organization, including charter schools. Join EdTec’s marketing team as we explore how to enhance your branding, improve engagement with your community, and make a lasting impact with your message and mission. Though not required, Barbie pink attire is strongly encouraged!

We look forward to seeing you at our booths and sessions. We hope everyone has a great time at the conference!

EdTec Opens Atlanta Office and Expands Work with Georgia Charters

November 20, 2017

EdTec is proud to announce the opening of our Atlanta office! We’re especially excited to be co-locating with our partner, the Georgia Charter Schools Association (GCSA), which allows us to collaborate with a dedicated, passionate team and stay abreast of new developments in Georgia’s education landscape.  

There is a lot of momentum surrounding the charter school movement in Georgia. With so much growth in the region, there is an increasing need for high-quality schools. Enrollment in charter schools in Georgia has more than tripled over the last decade, exceeding 84,000 students in the 2016-17 school year (Georgia Department of Education). EdTec is eager to contribute to this growth by sharing our knowledge and expertise and expanding our impact in the state. 

EdTec currently works with four charters in Georgia, throughout the metro Atlanta area, Macon, and Savannah. We provide these schools with full back-office support, which means we provide a CFO-level resource and a team of specialists to perform payroll, accounts payable, and accounting functions, as well as to support financial reporting and compliance requirements, enabling school leaders to focus on academic excellence. We also supported a few of these schools throughout the charter development stage by creating their charter application budgets, identifying sources of funding, and helping with the chartering process.  

As part of our partnership with the GCSA, EdTec provides critical support to aspiring school leaders who participate in GCSA’s charter school incubator. Our staff works together with applicants to create their school budgets, and, when necessary, develops multiple iterations of school budgets for district and state applications.  

We look forward to continuing our work with the GCSA and supporting the growth of high-quality charter schools in Georgia!
