Categories: Education, Library


With more than 30 campuses across Northern and Southern California, this client offers a challenging private school curriculum to preschool through high school-aged students. The client is focused on creating a safe and nurturing school environment where students are motivated to pursue their passions.

The Challenge

Challenged with reducing annual expenses, the client identified facility operations as an area for potential savings. To realize these savings, the client considered outsourcing its facility management function. However, school leaders were concerned that a new vendor might not mesh well with existing staff, causing service disruptions and negatively impacting both
students and faculty.

The Solution

The client turned to Flagship to assess its facility operations and fill in any support gaps. To the delight of school leaders, the client retained its existing facility staff. Flagship strategically added two supervisors to provide additional assistance and program oversight. Not only did this help increase accountability, but it also led to enhanced efficiency and process improvements.
