Our Approach
At OPTedge, we help schools make better use of resources—funding, community support, business partnerships, and more—
to create more options for students and staff. By combining our extensive public education expertise with private sector agility, we line up the right resources at the right time to achieve your goals.
That means we get the vagaries of school finance, and we know they don’t need to limit what schools can offer their students. We are positioned to offer customized services, respond quickly, and much more. And our shared services model allows us to offer a cost savings that benefits your bottom line. Together, we help you make smarter use of the resources at hand and create new opportunities through partnerships with staff, community, and the private sector.
In short, we have got you covered.
Now let’s talk about how we can help.

Smart Connections
We create opportunities that strengthen connections between classrooms and careers. Our externship program links teachers with regional businesses to offer a first-hand look at how the subjects and skills they teach relate to business needs and opportunities. The initiative broadens teacher knowledge about career options for their students—and what it takes to land a coveted college slot or job in a given field. It also helps schools calibrate student programs to the skills that are in demand.
The goal: students are better prepared to take their place in a highly competitive and global economy, and regional businesses gain access to a ready workforce that has both applied knowledge and the soft skills that are essential in today’s market.
