Education Solutions

What makes an education system successful? An understanding of what an optimal environment for teaching and learning entails, and the expertise to combine that with contemporary yet realistic principles for current and future needs. That’s where our team of experts comes in – we create recommendations for our educational clients that are reliable, actionable, and based on proven research and a thorough understanding of each district or system’s program needs and long-term goals.

Our team is led by former state education commissioners, district superintendents, school board members, principals, and teachers. We also employ experts specializing in organizational transformation. When we bring this expertise together, we’re able to create recommendations that balance the importance of both academic and operational effectiveness.

We have partnered with our education clients to allow for the reinvestment of hundreds of millions of dollars back into the classroom. From performance measurement and evaluation, management reviews, business process improvement, to facility master planning, enrollment projections, and capacity and utilization, we are passionate about what we do. The solutions we provide form the foundation of excellence for students, families, and communities across the globe.

Large-Scale Turnaround
Our turnaround teams partner with school systems to improve student outcomes, operations, enrollment, and finances. We partner with single schools or whole districts to provide comprehensive emergency management or school turnaround to help build consensus to create enduring, highly effective and competitive schools.
Strategic Planning & Implementation
Strategic planning is the cornerstone to successful organizations. A good strategic plan serves as a roadmap for keeping an institution on course. In addition, strategic planning moves an entity from reactive to proactive by connecting goals, strategies, performance measures, and action plans to an overall resource allocation process. Our team partners with Institutions to envision the future and develop the necessary actions to bring that vision to life.
Academic Program Assessments & Improvement Plans
We partner with clients to select or review curriculum, align with standards, and provide professional coaching and development to teachers.
Facilities Master Planning
MGT works with districts on multi-faceted long term facilities planning. Assisted by our proprietary program BASYS, this includes facility conditions and education suitability, enrollment forecasting and capacity analysis. We have delivered more than 300 master plans across the globe.
