Join EdTec at the 2021 National Charter Schools Conference!

June 15, 2021

EdTec is excited to be an exhibitor and presenter at the 2021 National Charter Schools Virtual Conference! The conference takes place June 20-23, 2021. We invite you to stop by the EdTec booth in the Solutions Center to say hello to our team members and learn how our charter experts can support your school with business, operations, and performance services. We’re also eager to share how we meet the needs of new school developers around the country with our expertise in charter development.

Annice Weinstein, EdTec’s Sr. Manager, Assessment Data and Analysis, will present a Solutions Session on Tuesday, June 22. We invite you to attend “Data Driven School Culture, But Make It Easy” at 12:00 pm ET.  We will showcase Otus, an affordable K-12 learning platform designed to streamline the process of using data to improve learning. Combined with EdTec’s charter-specific support, Otus is the ideal solution for charter schools striving for a data-driven, equity-focused school culture in a distanced, hybrid, or in-person learning environment.  We will also share how we have partnered with the National Student Clearinghouse®  to provide verified data for charters on their graduates’ college enrollment, persistence, and completion status, along with key reports to support your school’s renewal and other compliance requirements.  We look forward to sharing our knowledge in this area and learning about your school’s data needs.

We hope everyone has a wonderful conference experience!
