Chino Valley Unified School District


In fiscal year 2011, Chino Valley Unified School District’s student achievement was similar to peer district and state averages, and its operational efficiencies were mixed with some costs higher and some costs lower than peer districts’ averages. The District’s per-pupil administrative costs were slightly higher than peer districts’ because the District employed more administrative positions per pupil, primarily at the district office level. The District’s plant operations, food service, and transportation programs operated reasonably efficiently. Specifically, the District spent less per pupil for plant operations than the peer districts, on average, and its cost per square foot was similar. Although, food service costs per pupil were higher than peer districts’ primarily because the District served more meals, costs per meal were similar. In addition, the District’s per-rider and per-mile transportation costs were lower than peer districts’ averages primarily because it employed fewer transportation staff. Despite the reasonably efficient operations, the District needs to improve controls over access to critical information systems and strengthen controls over its fuel purchase cards.
