TEQlease Education Finance helps schools get financing to acquire equipment, and fits financing terms within school budget restraints over terms up to five years.

TEQlease Team Visits Westlake Charter School

Westlake Charter School  kindly hosted TEQlease Equipment Finance Specialists and staff Erika Aguirre, Jamell Dorton, Dana Andrada and Mike Lockwood on March 20, 2017 just before the CCSA conference.

John Eick, Executive Director, and Steve Korvink, Chief Business Officer, gave the TEQlease team a tour of the new school construction that will combine all Westlake Charter School K-8 students in one location this Fall.

The building, grounds and the collaborative thought process that will result in an incomparable educational facility are most impressive.  The facility’s collaborative design process sought input from teachers, staff members and Westlake’s community, and will ultimately result in a truly exceptional campus.

Westlake Charter School currently operates from two separate campuses, consisting entirely of portable classroom buildings. The new site is nestled into the North Natomas community and shares an adjacent city park for additional outdoor exploration and educational opportunities.

In addition to modern learning spaces, Westlake Charter School will feature a gymnasium, cafeteria/multi-purpose space and abundant technology to support the school’s commitment to a technology-rich environment. The new school is scheduled for completion in August 2017.

Chester’s Technology Refresh

More than 6,900 schools support the education of around 3.1 million students.  This means charter enrollment has nearly tripled in the last 10 years.

Even with this significant growth, it only represents a small fraction (around 5%) of the overall K-12 public school enrollment nationwide.
