THE PORTOLAN GROUP COMPLETES STUDY OF UTICA SCHOOL DISTRICT'S PHYSICAL PLANT OPERATIONS

Utica, New York’s school district hired the staff of The Portolan Group to conduct an analysis of their physical plant operations. Upon conclusion of the study, a report was provided the school board. Upon reviewing the report, one school board member commented, “I have seen thousands of reports in my years as a school board member. This is the finest I have ever read.”

The Portolan Group provided analysis, comparisons, best practices and recommendations for improving the overall functioning of the department. Utica has many older buildings that present a real challenge to the staff. The winters are very hard on the staff and the buildings. The district is committed to excellence. The physical plant study was a key focus of that commitment.
