Sunnyside Unified School District


In fiscal year 2018, Sunnyside Unified School District’s student passage rates on State assessments were lower than the peer districts’ averages, and the District’s operations were reasonably efficient. Despite reasonably efficient operations, the District’s inadequate accounting and computer controls increased its risk of errors, fraud, and unauthorized access to sensitive information and led to incorrect payments. Further, the District failed to ensure that all employees and governing board members completed a conflict-of-interest disclosure form. Additionally, the District provided food and beverages at District events and a public café without express statutory authority to do so. Lastly, the District did not ensure that its bus drivers met certification requirements and lacked documentation to demonstrate required school bus preventative maintenance.
