THE PORTOLAN GROUP COMPLETES ITS ANALYSIS OF THE ESCAMBIA COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT CUSTODIAL OPERATIONS

The Portolan Group has finished its evaluation of the custodial department of the Escambia County School District, Pensacola, FL. The Escambia School Board adopted recommendations from the study that are estimated to save the district over $500,000 a year. Both the board and the superintendent have expressed appreciation for the work of The Portolan Group. In fact, they have hired the staff of The Portolan Group for a second, or implementation phase of the study.

The study involved an intense analysis of the district’s custodial operations. The entire program, including staffing, purchasing and leadership structure was reorganized. The approved recommendations form a key component of district-wide needed cost savings. They will also help create a more efficient and effective custodial department.
