We're heading to the Ohio Charter Schools Conference

Charter School Capital

November 5, 2015


OAPCS Conference LogoThe Charter School Capital team is packing up and getting ready to head to Columbus, Ohio next week to celebrate the 18 years of charter school growth in the state.
We’re proud of our continued partnership with the Ohio Alliance for Public Charter Schools and be the Diamond Sponsor of this year’s Ohio Charter Schools Conference.
Our focus at the conference will be on the 4T’s – teachers, textbooks, transportation, and technology – and how our growth capital can help fund these and other operational needs. Our facilities team will also be on hand to help schools learn more about our facilities financing options and how we can provide schools more control over their facilities needs.
If you’re attending the conference, check out one of our informative breakout sessions:
