In fiscal year 2015, Palominas Elementary School District’s student achievement was slightly higher than the peer districts’, and the District operated efficiently overall with similar or lower costs in most operational areas when compared to peer districts’ averages. Specifically, the District’s administrative costs per pupil were similar to the peer districts’, on average. However, the District needs to strengthen its computer and building access controls. The District’s plant operations costs per pupil and per square foot were similar to the peer districts’ averages, and the District’s food service program operated efficiently with a lower cost per meal than peer districts’, on average, because it negotiated favorable terms with its food service vendor. Lastly, although the District’s transportation program costs per mile and per rider were similar to the peer districts’ averages, the District’s fuel inventory controls need strengthening, and the District did not always conduct timely bus preventative maintenance.
