Report 2013-046: Cafeteria Funds: Local Education Agencies Generally Use the Funds for Appropriate Purposes (Release Date: February 2014)

Recommendation #29 To: San Diego Unified School District

Local Education Agencies that used cafeteria funds for unallowable purposes should, by June 30, 2014, review all guidance from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Education to better understand what these funds can be used for.


6-Month Agency Response

San Diego Unified School District has fully implemented this recommendation. Finance Managers have reviewed the guidance from the US Department of Agriculture and the CA Department of Education on the use of the funds, and have worked with all budget/finance staff to clarify their understanding of "acceptable charges" to the cafeteria fund. Going forward, when new staff are hired into the finance division, a direct focus will be made on the authorized use guidelines. This recommendation should be closed.
