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

Tuesday, March 14

  • The New Charter School’s Guide to Pre-Launch | 8:30am – 9:30am
    • Your charter application has been approved…and now the hard work continues as you prepare for opening day! In this session we will address important finance, operations, and governance topics for new school leaders and board members, including managing cash flow, understanding financial statements, and navigating challenges with facilities, personnel, and student recruitment. Our panel of experts and distinguished school leaders will share their experiences, lessons learned, and things to avoid as you prepare to welcome students.
  • A Conversation on Replication in GAs New Charter Landscape | 1:50pm – 2:50pm
    • This session will focus on how high performing charter schools can use replication as a tool to reach more families, communities, and students. We will briefly go over the prerequisites to replicate with the SCSC and how the process works. Afterwards, a panel of 3 distinguished school leaders will discuss their experience with the process, obstacles to avoid, and the overall benefits that the school has realized.

We look forward to seeing you at our booths and sessions. We hope everyone has a great conference experience full of learning, networking, and inspiration.

Join EdTec at the Georgia Charter Schools Conference!

March 1, 2018

EdTec is excited to be a Platinum Sponsor of the 15th annual Georgia Charter Schools Conference! The conference takes place March 5-7, 2018 at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel & Convention Center in Atlanta, Georgia. We’re proud to work together with the Georgia Charter Schools Association to support Georgia charters, and we’re looking forward to connecting with charter leaders next week at our booth and breakout sessions!

We’ll be presenting two breakout sessions this year, both on Tuesday, March 6. We invite you to attend “Strengthening Board Governance: Using Dashboard to Drive Decisions” with our EVP and Chief Client Services Officer Peter Laub, from 8:30 am – 9:30 am in the Wilton room. This session is designed to help charter board members identify and aggregate key data points and make informed decisions about academics, finance, and compliance.

We also hope to see you later in the day for our second session, “Better Budget Building“, which will begin at 3:30 pm in Grand Ballroom I & II. EdTec’s  Gasper Magallanes and Leslie Gabbianelli will present this session, along with Dr. Latrisha Chattin, Executive Director of our charter partner Susie King Taylor Community School. Attendees will learn how to strengthen budget assumptions and meet state compliance standards in order to improve decision making at the school level and communicate a more effective story to potential fundraisers and lenders.

We’ll be at Booth S17, so when you’re not attending sessions, please come by to meet our team and learn how our charter experts can support your school with back-office services. We’re also excited to share how we meet the needs of new school developers with personalized, multi-year budgeting and forecasting.

We look forward to sharing our knowledge with Georgia’s charter school leaders, and we wish everyone a very productive three days of learning!
