CHARLOTTE MECKLENBURG SCHOOL DISTRICT HIRES THE PORTOLAN GROUP FOR ASSISTANCE WITH SUPPORT SERVICE DEPARTMENT’S “BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT PLANS”

The Charlotte Mecklenburg School District has hired The Portolan Group to assist the auxiliary department heads with their business improvement plans. These departments include: graphics, food service, student transportation, facilities (maintenance, custodial, grounds) and materials management. This is a six month effort that will provide recommendations for improved business practices for each department.

It represents the continued growth in the capabilities of The Portolan Group to serve America’s largest districts. PGI will provide their exclusive Safe Harbor program to assist the food and facilities department heads to evaluate performance and identify improvement strategies. Charlotte Mecklenburg School District is a member of the Council of Great City Schools, the largest district in the State of North Carolina and the twenty-first largest in America.

Terry Burgess, PGI's Executive VP said, "It is great to be working in the great State of North Carolina again. We supported Wake County Schools last year and are excited to now have served the two largest districts in the state.
