TONGANOXIE, Kan. - On average Kansas public school districts spend 9.85 percent of their annual operating budgets on facilities, maintenance and utilities. With available resources shrinking, administrators face a daunting challenge maintaining school facilities.
Tonganoxie schools recently utilized the P1 approach to save the district money. After switching from the previous preventive maintenance contract, USD 464 saved more than $60,000 a year. P1 assisted the district with identifying all equipment in each of the eight school buildings and worked with them to create a task list to prioritize which items required attention first.

As a team, P1 Group’s Performance Solutions staff and Saint Luke’s building operators have reduced the Energy Center’s utility spend by more than 29 percent.
