Plainville Community Schools Named National Campus Champion For Operational Excellence
Plainville Community Schools has been named a national Campus Champion for operational excellence by SchoolDude, the market leader in education enterprise asset management. Campus Champions exemplify excellence in the stewardship of school resources. Individuals and institutions are selected annually to recognize top performers among their peers. By adopting industry best practices and leading teams, Campus Champions generate savings in both time and money for their schools through efficient and effective management of facilities and operations.
Lucy Keegan, office professional in the Plainville Community Schools' Facilities Department, is a Campus Champion for excellence in preventive maintenance. "Using SchoolDude helps everyone get work completed faster and more efficiently, eliminating unnecessary costs and increasing productivity," Keegan said. Facilities Department Director Steve Busel noted, "Lucy's enthusiasm and organizational skills helped us get SchoolDude off the ground and she has been an integral part of its success. I'm honored to congratulate Lucy on her achievement of being inducted into SchoolDude's inaugural class of Campus Champions for her work in preventative maintenance."
SchoolDude analyzed more than 75 terabytes of data from more than 6,000 educational institutions to measure performance and identify the top performers. Though every school is different, the common best practice among all of the preventive maintenance Campus Champions was that preventive maintenance is critical to reduce life cycle costs, improve customer service, increase energy efficiency of buildings and equipment, improve safety and reduce risk. Campus Champions help everyone in their schools get work completed faster and more efficiently, eliminating unnecessary costs and increasing productivity.
"Excellence is a journey, not a destination," said SchoolDude President Lee Prevost. "The ongoing excellence achieved by our Campus Champions highlights their best practices. In an increasingly challenging environment, Campus Champions have embraced the power of technology to improve school operations. A dollar saved in operations is a dollar more for education. As Campus Champions, they are helping their schools and their peers across the nation best apply education resources for everyone."
