Learn How to Create Your Own Charter School: Upcoming Webinar for Members of The Next Generation Forum On Children's Services

Join This Members-Only Web Briefing on July 27 at 2:00pm ET to Hear How Lena Pope Home, Inc. Developed and Implemented Its Charter School

GETTYSBURG, PA--(Marketwired - July 18, 2016) - Learn the competencies and tactics needed to develop and grow a successful charter school during an upcoming webinar featuring Todd Landry, chief executive officer of Lena Pope Home, Inc. Join Mr. Landry and OPEN MINDS senior associate, Howard Shiffman on July 27th at 2:00pm ET for this exclusive web briefing for members of The Next Generation Forum On Children's Services.

The charter school movement has been in the forefront of serving disadvantaged and other special-needs children since its inception, weathering changes in education delivery for children with special education, mental health, and behavioral health needs. Nearly 3 million children were attending more than 6,700 public charter schools in 43 states and the District of Columbia during the 2014-2015 school year (according to testimony on April 29, 2015 by Nina Rees, President and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, to the House Appropriations Committee/Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education). "The growth in the charter movement during the 23 years since the first school opened in 1992 has been absolutely phenomenal," said Ms. Rees.

Understanding how to blend treatment program redesign and the unique opportunities that operating a charter school can provide is one innovative way that children's service providers can and are responding to marketplace changes. Providers who are contemplating how to successfully expand their mission should consider the growth opportunities and value added through the creation of their own charter school. Todd Landry, chief executive officer of Lena Pope Home, Inc. did just that.

Join Mr. Landry and OPEN MINDS senior associate, Howard Shiffman, on July 27th at 2:00pm ET for an exclusive case study web briefing on the effective launch and growth of Lena Pope Home, Inc.'s charter school. This web briefing is designed to offer children's service providers the competencies and tactics required to create and grow a charter school program in their own community.

This Lena Pope Home, Inc. case study web briefing will focus on some key issues for organizations looking to implement and grow their own charter school, including:

  • Market drivers, including those that prompted Lena Pope Home, Inc. to expand its mission to implement a charter school
  • Insights on key strategies for creating, launching, and growing a charter school
  • Challenges and successes experienced during the charter school implementation and growth process
