TEQlease Education Finance announced that the company has provided iLEAD Charter Schools, a Southern California-based charter school group, with a comprehensive equipment lease financing solution for IT equipment, tablets, IT infrastructure, school furniture and other school equipment for its Santa Clarita, Lancaster and San Fernando Valley learning centers. iLEAD Charter Schools expanded its offerings this year with the addition of several new locations, bringing the total number of iLEAD locations to 11.

“This agreement will play a key role in the ongoing expansion of iLEAD Schools,” said Dawn Evenson, co-founder and executive director of education for iLEAD Schools. “With new locations in Pacoima, Encino, North Hollywood and Antelope Valley, we’re bringing iLEAD’s project-based, learner-centered approach to an ever-increasing number of learners.”

Amber Raskin, iLEAD co-founder and executive director of business development and operations, said the agreement with TEQlease will provide much-needed equipment and technology for the charter school group’s students in kindergarten through 12th grade. “Our focus at iLEAD is on developing lifelong learners, and equipment and technology play key roles in the development of our future leaders,” Raskin said. “This agreement provides the assurance that all iLEAD locations will have the infrastructure to facilitate an excellent learning experience at all levels.”

Mike Lockwood, president of TEQlease Education Finance, said the agreement is a manifestation of the company’s commitment to helping charter schools obtain the equipment needed to educate 21st-century leaders. “iLEAD Charter Schools is a premier charter school group, with a well-established history of providing superior academics. The iLEAD Charter Schools management team did a fantastic job bringing about a major expansion in a very short amount of time. We are very pleased to have provided the equipment lease financing solution that iLEAD Charter Schools required to accomplish the expansion and integration of several new school locations,” he said. Lockwood added: “We are deeply committed to helping charter schools with the funding they need to educate their students. In addition, we are excited to be part of such a special project, and we take pride in knowing that our efforts go to an excellent cause and help shape the minds of the future.”
