Fredonia-Moccasin Unified School District


In fiscal year 2014, Fredonia-Moccasin USD’s student achievement was similar to peer districts’, and although it had higher costs in some noninstructional areas, the District’s operations were reasonably efficient overall. The District’s administrative costs per pupil were much higher than the peer districts’ average, but only because it had fewer students than the peer districts, on average. However, the District needs to strengthen its accounting, computer, and building access controls. Fredonia-Moccasin USD’s plant operations cost per pupil was slightly higher than the peer districts’ average primarily because it operated much more square footage per pupil than the peer districts averaged. To its credit, the District has taken steps to reduce the amount of excess space it maintains, such as closing a school and closing off unused space at another school. The District’s food service program was reasonably efficient, with a cost per meal that was similar to the peer districts’ average. However, the District provided meals to a local preschool program but did not charge enough to cover its costs. Lastly, the District’s transportation program had higher costs per mile and per rider, but the program was reasonably efficient. The District employed efficient practices, such as having its bus drivers perform other work for the District when not driving.
