KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI SCHOOL DISTRICT SELECTS THE PORTOLAN GROUP

The Kansas City, Missouri School District has selected the Portolan Group to conduct an independent assessment of the district's facilities department. The assessment will focus on the maintenance, custodial and grounds functions of the department. The assessment which began February 1 is scheduled to be completed by June 1. KCMSD previously retained PGI to provide process management services in 2006 when the district sought to outsource the management of its child nutrition program.

When asked about this opportunity, Portolan Group Vice President Rick Quinn said, "We are thrilled to have an opportunity to serve the Kansas City, Missouri Schools. The Board of Education and administration want to provide students with an optimal learning environment while ensuring a high degree of efficiency. As the recognized authority for assessing k-12 support services, we are pleased to once again be chosen to serve a major urban school district."
