Waco, Texas has grown 21% since 2000. The local school district is charged with educating growing numbers of children in aging school buildings. Waco ISD needed a software solution that would help to accurately track work orders, maintenance and deferred maintenance to help build a case for a bond project to finance the building of new schools, while also helping to maintain facilities into the future.


By maximizing the use of Brightly’s software solutions, Waco ISD was able to:

  • Rapidly secure a $355 million bond for new school buildings
  • Provide data to increase insurance claim payout by $8 million after a disaster
  • Justify the creation of a new preventative maintenance team, including six new staff positions
  • Provide data to increase facilities budget five-fold in six years


City school district with:

  • Approximately 15,000 students
  • 32 school buildings
  • 2.4 million square feet of facility space
