School is back in session! Let's talk about Strategic FM for education

It's that time of year again - school is back in session! Now is the perfect opportunity to discuss facilities management and capital planning for K-12 education. Making strategic decisions that transform your institution to improve the student experience, increase enrollment, and boost ROI is a challenging task that requires careful consideration.

School is back in session! Let's talk about Strategic FM for education

As students return to campus, fill the halls, and take to the fields, now is the ideal opportunity to ensure all physical assets function correctly. Many K-12 school districts expect campuses to be fully occupied and operational despite COVID-19's continued presence, and facilities teams must prepare for a busy and unpredictable school year. 

Embracing technology is critical for facility managers at K-12 Schools. Structured and organized FM can improve the physical performance and appearance of a building and its systems, increase users' satisfaction, and improve the efficiency with which the building is maintained and operated.
