What attendees have said:

A similar presentation was held at the 2014 National Charter Schools Conference to a standing-room only audience and was rated as a top 10 session out of 200 offered. Below is feedback received from attendees:
“It was beneficial to hear other school leaders explain how they overcame the same challenges that my school is currently facing.”
“Once I understood the different stages, I could see that our school was in expansion stage, but our organization was still making start-up stage decisions.”
