Austin ISD, one of the largest urban districts in Texas, hired Gibson to conduct an executive level organizational study to better align its functions and establish appropriate spans of control.
We conducted 52 interviews, six focus groups, and a series of surveys. We also reviewed relevant documents provided by the district. The project resulted in $1 million in annual savings, as well as other recommendations to improve planning and accountability. Since this project, Gibson has performed additional organizational analysis work for a new superintendent and worked with the district to identify potential areas for cost savings.
