This past week, Paul Lemley and Tim Lemoine, two of BC Construction Group's charter school team members, attended the National Charter School Conference in Austin, Texas. With approximately 5,000 attendees, Tim and Paul met with many individuals who are passionate about education- learning, listening, and connecting with educators and other companies dedicated to the success of children across the nation.
As of 2018, there are more than 6,900 charter schools educating three million students in 42 states, including the District of Columbia. It is clear charter schools are continuing to expand their presence and influence within the education market. In the picture with Tim and Paul is Highmark School Development's team of charter school professionals. With over 84 schools, 64,000+ students, and 3.4M + square footage of facility space within their portfolio, Highmark is a premier solutions provider for the charter school space. After returning home from the event, Tim stated: "It is always an enriching time spent with like-minded, missioned individuals where our team recognizes the critical role BC Construction Group provides in this positive and focused pursuit of helping children succeed." Both Tim and Paul look forward to representing BC Construction Group at the conference in 2019.
