Gwinnett Public Schools case study

Gwinnett County Public Schools (GCPS) is the largest school district in Georgia, with 132 schools. In the 2013–2014 school year, GCPS served more than 169,000 students and was the largest employer in the county, with more than 22,000 staff members.

Ensuring a seamless delivery of IT tools and solutions required a lot of behind-the-scenes coordination and effort. With no central project management system, IMT employees got work done and met deadlines through sheer heroism.


With Microsoft Project, GCPS was able to save time, better allocate resources, proactively identify project risks, and help the school district run more smoothly.
