“WHAT GOT YOU HERE, WON’T GET YOU THERE”  – Marshall Goldsmith

In 2005 after a devastating defeat of a bond referendum, Mecklenburg County Manager Harry Jones assembled a blue ribbon committee to see what could be done to fund much needed facility renovations and additions for Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. Former Governor James Martin was asked to chair that committee. Mike Raible was asked to provide staff support. Governor Martin named the committee the School Solutions Committee. The committee validated the needs expressed in the bond referendum and succeeded in getting the funding for the construction that was in critical need. When he founded his consulting firm, Mike Raible named his organization The School Solutions Group to honor the effort of the original committee.

Raible always admired architect, Charles W. Moore. It seemed he would either find a project and then locate talented colleagues in the area with which to partner, or he would find the talent and then pursue a project in the area. He was a collaborating member of a number of firms concurrently during his career.

In his career as a demographic analyst and facility planner, Mike Raible has met many talented colleagues. He decided that rather than building a traditional consulting firm with a set group of employees, that The School Solutions Group would take the opportunity to work with many of these individuals as projects came available. In the School Solutions Group consultancy, Raible strives to provide unique solutions for educational organizations. He has been trained as an architect and has taken coursework in design thinking from the “d. school” at Stanford University and from the Darden Business School at the University of Virginia. In his more than 25 years in service to public education, he has realized that his training and experience has given him the ability to observe what appear to be obstacles from a very different perspective.

The School Solutions Group offers consulting services nationwide. Raible has worked with school systems in Texas and Oklahoma, a group in Denver, a small district in Kentucky, and several large and small districts in North Carolina. He has co-authored over 50 articles for School Planning and Management magazine and written two books published in 2016.
