RKR Planning Services

North Paulding School Cluster
How can public school systems make informed decisions regarding the best
use of their facilities? At RKR, our Planning Services team has been working to successfully answer this question by taking into account multiple factors such as census data, surrounding school districts, county birth data, home sales, etc, to create custom-designed solutions that meet the specific needs of each school district.

For example, with the Polk School District we evaluated individual school enrollment history with anticipated area changes so that a correlation was developed that placed students in their zoned school. The final documents contained easy to read graphs so the data could be interpreted.

For the Paulding County School District, our Planning Services team provided projection data to support the staff allocation process, which also helped to develop long range planning opportunities.

In addition, a facilities study that we produced for Decatur City (Ala.)school district provided vital information in preparing the final document for its Board-approved 2020 Strategic Improvement Plan.

By taking into account multiple factors such as the above, RKR Planning Services can provide the data needed to make the most informed decisions for your school district.

In the past few years alone, we've provided planning services for over 20 school districts in Georgia and Alabama, both small (under 3,000 students) and large (more than 30,000 students), assisting with:
  •  Enrollment projections
  • School zone modifications
  • Master planning
  • Analysis of individual building capacities
  • Facility assessments
  • And much more

How can we help you? To learn more about what RKR has to offer in this area, please call Steve Bennett at 770-537-1845.

Loy Howard, President & CEO of Tanner Health System

Q: Share with us a little bit of your background at Tanner Health System?

A: I have been president and CEO of Tanner Health Systems since 1994. We certainly have grown dramatically in that time period, as our community has grown. We’ve expanded from two loosely associated hospitals to what will soon be a five-hospital system. We have grown in medical staff from less than 100 to more than 400 physicians. We’ve transformed into a regional medical center during that time period.

Q: What do you find to be the most rewarding part of your job?

A: Working with the community. As a community hospital, it’s starting initiatives and programs and seeing them play out over time. Through serving patients, that helps patients and families stay close to home for high quality health care so they don’t have to commute to Atlanta. I think it is very rewarding that people are better off today and healthier because of the programs that we have started. That really is what excites me every day when I get up…

Interview with University of West Georgia President, Dr. Kyle Marrero

Q: What is the day to day like for you as UWG President?

A: It’s interesting to be a president of a university in today’s environment and it’s not what someone might think it is. It certainly encompasses many facets with the belief that transforming lives via educational obtainment being at the center. I think the most successful presidents are the ones that always remind their administrators, faculty and staff that any strategic planning or implementation of any actions or initiates need to be reviewed through a filter and lens of student success. What will this mean to focus and to allow our students to be the most successful - not only here as they enter our gates - but also beyond our gates. Our job is to prepare the students to be ready for an ever-complex world. The reality of the job is interesting, because it’s a 16- hour-a-day job, which I love and feel incredibly blessed to be a part of. And, there are multiple constituencies to serve and to help align, which can be challeng…

Lights, Camera, Classrooms!

Georgia has long been known for agriculture, namely cotton, peanuts, onions and peaches, but it’s fastest growing cash crop these days is the movie and production business. In fact, Georgia is now ranked third in the nation and fifth in the world for the number of productions on an annual basis.

It is estimated that during the next 3-5 years, the film industry will generate 3,000 - 5,000 new jobs. Both K-12 school systems and higher education institutions are stepping up to provide unique education opportunities for students interested in the TV and movie making business.

Two of RKR’s clients are helping to provide an educated film-ready workforce to help grow the industry.
