King stands apart in the school consulting
industry for many reasons.
King Consulting is a full service, comprehensive school planning firm. We offer a wide array of services to assist school districts of all sizes across California and the nation with their school planning needs and funding opportunities.
We’re Small, but Mighty
Most importantly, we are a small firm staffed with only highly experienced and enthusiastic experts. While we excel at managing and summarizing data, we shine when it comes to presenting our findings and results. We are always excited for the opportunity to meet in person or over the phone to clearly explain anything needed to our clients’ staff, school board, and community. Our clients receive information within a broader context that includes full narrative explanations that school district staff and school board members repeatedly reference throughout the year.
We Get You the Most Money
When we work for our clients to obtain State funding or to justify Level 1 or Level 2 developer fees, they can rest assured that King Consulting has exhausted every possibility before submitting impeccably prepared documents that deliver maximum returns. We take the time to approach these complex cases from multiple angles before pursuing the right one for each client individually.
Location and Proximity
Further, as a Sacramento-based corporation, King Consulting has well established and maintained contacts at all of the relevant California state agencies for public school districts. Our proximity allows us to submit documents or schedule meetings quickly, an asset we frequently utilize on behalf of our clients.
We take pride in the relationships we form with our clients. We care about our school districts, and we get to know them intimately in the course of our work. This is why so many of our clients work with us year after year: King Consulting digs deeper and tries harder in every aspect of our work because we become personally invested in the districts we get to work with. We will always go that extra mile! Best of all, when you need us, we are always there: when you call King Consulting, our project managers are the ones picking up the phone.
For any size of school district, from a single school building to a hundred, King Consulting is the firm who will provide maximum value for any sort of project. Please see our services page for a full list of what we can do to assist you today!

Everyone at King loves what they do and uses their enthusiasm to produce top quality studies and to secure maximum funding for school districts. King offers a wide array of consulting services in Demographics and Facilities Planning, Financial Services, Geographic Information Systems Projects, and DSA Closeout work. We look forward to hearing from you and including our work you in our ongoing successful history!

Mr. Murray then worked for five-plus years at HDR in Folsom, California as part of the Water Resources division, leading GIS teams on large, federally funded projects involving flood risk assessment, as well as numerous state and local projects involving water resource management and habitat preservation. He then transitioned to a career in the public education sector, working with the San Juan Unified School District and Sacramento City Unified School District, becoming adept at using GIS and other analytical tools to project enrollment trends, adjusting attendance boundaries as populations and school capacities changed, and reporting on pertinent demographics at the request of senior District leadership.
