Tom Rayburn – Chief Operations Officer & General Manager

Tom Rayburn is an industry innovator.  Having received his management training in commercial banking, Tom took his technology leanings and created software for managing support center operations for Bank of America in the 1980’s, whilst serving as a regional manager in the branch support system.  That knowledge transferred perfectly to school business management.

Hired in 1998 at Capistrano Unified School District (CUSD) by legendary M&O visionary Joe Dixon, Tom leveraged and applied his business experience to schools by introducing Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) and establishing a Strategic Master Plan for maintenance & operations; an unheard-of-thing in the 1990’s.  Under Dixon’s leadership, Tom began developing a vision for maintenance which they began sharing at the 2000 Annual Conference for the Coalition for Adequate School Housing in Sacramento.  It was a huge hit!  During his maintenance department management years, Tom also acted in the role of construction management.  Tom has conducted over $200 million in school modernization projects; utilizing the State School Facility Program combined with eRate and Federal School Modernization Bonds.

Tom was instrumental in conducting trainings statewide on use of the Emergency Repair Program after the state settled the revolutionary Williams Lawsuit.  The eRate program was an additional source of revenue for CUSD, and Tom was tasked with securing it since year-1 in 1999.  Tom oversaw the entire process from bid to project execution.  Funding amounts were between $2 million and $40 million per year through year 14, when version 2.0 reduced the funding methodology.

In 2002 Tom partnered with EDU Business Solutions to distribute software that he created to aid schools in managing their facility use; mimicking what he was creating at CUSD.  Additionally, Tom had created a program to manage the district print shop called Print Shop Pro.  By 2007, so many school districts were using the software that Tom left CUSD and joined EDU Business Solutions to devote himself full-time to the advancement of school maintenance departments.

Tom’s alma mater is Christian Heritage College and CSU Long Beach; additionally Tom has conducted workshops and spoken at programs throughout the United States including AIA, CASBO, CASH, CSU Fullerton, CSU Long Beach, School Starters, Stanford University, and hundreds of regional maintenance and engineering related venues.  Tom served in a review capacity for the Collaborative for High Performance Schools' (CHPS) best practices maintenance manual and is a recipient of the Building Operator Certificate from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Council.
