In fiscal year 2011, Kingman Unified School District’s student achievement was similar to peer district averages, and it operated efficiently with lower costs than peer districts’, on average. The District operated its administration with lower per pupil costs because it employed fewer administrative staff per pupil than peer districts, on average, and its plant operations were efficient, with a cost per square foot that was lower than the peer districts’ average. In addition, Kingman USD has implemented many effective techniques and practices to manage its food service program. The program was efficient and self-supporting, with a cost per meal that was 13 percent lower than the peer districts’ average. The District’s transportation program cost per pupil was higher than the peer districts’ average, but the program was efficient, with lower per mile costs. However, the District should improve some of its administrative practices.
