Lee Reid shared knowledge of charter schools in two different presentations at the Louisiana Association of Public Charter Schools' 2019 Annual Conference in New Orleans. 

The first, "Long-Term, High-Impact: Accessing Major Savings with Permanent Facilities Financing," covered new long-term facility financing options thanks to the reintroduction of tax-exempt bonds and the entrance of new investors in the charter school market. Recent legislative changes and the passage of three tax-exempt bonds for three charter school facilities by the Louisiana Bond Commission are evidence of this change. Lee and his co-presenters discussed the pros and cons of each such option available to Louisiana charter schools. 

Lee also presented "Louisiana Code of Ethics," a one-hour review of the Board's annual ethics training for public employees, including public charter school employees and board members.
