Chester’s Technology Refresh

Charter School Enrollment Tops 3 Million Students

According to an article published by Education Week (here), estimates of the total number of students enrolled in charter schools has surpassed 3 million.

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.

Country Gardens Charter’s New Chemistry Lab


Country Gardens Charter School
, located in Laveen, Arizona, prides itself on “Cultivating Young Minds For The Future”.   Its Zoo Lab Program has been such a success that it wanted to add a chemistry lab for its students.  To help accomplish that, it chose to partner with TEQlease Education Finance to help with budget considerations.  TEQlease helped them take that investment and spread it across several budget periods.

“TEQlease is a good company to work with,” said Goldie Burge, Superintendent of Country Gardens Charter School.  “Jamell Dorton and the rest of the TEF team are very knowledgeable. They were able to help us acquire the chemistry lab equipment in a timely manner, and they kept us informed every step of the way. “

“We are excited that TEQlease Education Finance was able to assist Country Gardens Charter School in acquiring the chemistry lab equipment,” said Mike Lockwood, President of TEQlease Capital. “This lease is the first of two leases the school asked us to work on.  We again aim to provide customized solutions for charter schools so they can acquire the equipment that is essential to educating students.”
