Bouse Elementary School District


In fiscal year 2014, Bouse Elementary School District’s student AIMS scores were lower than peer districts’ averages, and, although its costs were higher than peer districts’ in most operational areas, the District was reasonably efficient overall for its size. The District’s administrative costs per pupil were much higher than peer districts’ but did not reflect inefficient operations. However, the District needs to strengthen payroll, purchasing, cash collection, and computer controls. Its plant operations and food service programs were also reasonably efficient despite higher costs, and the District has implemented cost-savings measures such as installing solar panels to lower its plant operations costs and fully utilizing United States Department of Agriculture food commodities to lower its food service costs. Additionally, the District’s transportation program was reasonably efficient for its size, and we did not identify any inefficiencies.
