EdTec is proud to be a sponsor, exhibitor, and presenter at the California Charter Schools Virtual Conference! The conference is scheduled for March 15-19, 2021. EdTec staff, along with our partner organizations and partner schools, will present 10 breakout sessions, as well as participate in the School Developer Summit and present during the Solutions Hour. We’re looking forward to this opportunity to share our expertise and connect with charter leaders across the state.

On Tuesday, March 16 at 11am, as part of the Solutions Hour, EdTec will open up its monthly, clients-only Leadership Hour series to all conference attendees! Our school finance and accountability experts will provide updates on current issues impacting California charter schools, including the 2021-22 State Budget proposal and related legislation. We’ll also provide guidance on the Local Indicators and 2021-24 LCAP development, preparing you to align your goals, set reasonable metrics, and track expenditures.

We also hope you will visit our booth in the Virtual Exhibit Hall to meet the EdTec team and learn more about our services.  We’ll be available everyday during exhibit hall hours to meet one-on-one to discuss how we can support your school with new charter petitions, back office, CALPADS,  student achievement analyses, the LCAP, licensing for learning management solutions, charter renewal, grant writing, and more.
