The Philadelphia School Partnership with the PA Coalition of Public Charter Schools and the Excellent Schools PA held the Philadelphia Charter Operations Conference on January 11th.  The discussion focused on issues ranging from fiscal sustainability, financial management practices, operations and board governance.  Karen Daniels and Lori Clement led a conference session to share Best Practices for Finance and Operations with Philadelphia charter school leaders, innovators and experts.

“It was incredible to be surrounded by so many smart, caring people committed to creating excellence for Philadelphia students.  I was very honored to be chosen to share our best practices with these leaders.  One of the defining values of the charter sector is collaboration.  Across the country you see charter school leaders sharing their experiences and knowledge with each other and other educators to help all students succeed.  I could see this happening at the Philadelphia conference and am grateful for the opportunity to be part of it. ”  – Lori Clement
