EdTec will be attending the 2017 Charter Schools Development Center Conference as a sponsor, exhibitor, and presenter! The conference takes place November 16-17 in San Diego at the Manchester Grand Hyatt. We’ll be at Booth #54 at the Exhibitor Fair, so be sure to stop by and say hello to our staff!
We’re also excited to share that EdTec staff will present two sessions at the conference. The first session is designed for school leaders thinking about expansion or replication. We invite you to attend “Successful Charter School Expansion and Growth” on Friday, November 17 from 1:30pm – 2:45pm in room Gaslamp A, with Chang Patel, Senior Client Manager at EdTec, and Alison Suffet-Diaz, Founder and Executive Director of Environmental Charter Schools. Attendees will learn best practices from charter schools that have achieved successful expansion and growth, and will walk away with an understanding of important issues to consider in the decision making process, such as funding, facilities, talent recruitment, the pros and cons of various charter management organization (CMO) models, replication vs. expansion, and more.
Later on Friday, school leaders will have an opportunity to learn how to best prepare for their upcoming audits at our second session, “Prepare For Your Audit”, presented by Amita Parikh, Client Manager at EdTec, along with James Rotherham of Squar Milner, at 3:00pm – 4:15pm in room Gaslamp B. The presenters will offer expert advice on implementing fiscal policies, understanding various requests, and interacting with auditors.
We look forward to a productive two days of learning with California’s talented charter school leaders. Remember to stop by Booth #54 and say hello!
