With regard to nonprogram foods, Local Education Agencies should create and implement a system to track their nonprogram foods costs and/or nonprogram foods revenues by June 30, 2014.
See California State Auditor's Assessment of Status.
The school district provided its response to our recommendations to the California Department of Education. Our review of that response found that the school district fully implemented our recommendations.
District continues to track the majority of non program foods costs and revenue for the 2013-14 school year. For a small number of items, the District is working to find a true nonprogram cost as the items are not sold solely as nonprogram foods but are comingled into total food costs. Once tracking is complete for the 2013-14 school year, the District will utilize the Nonprogram Food Tool, provided by USDA, to determine whether the revenues from the sale of nonprogram foods cover the cost of those same foods.
Agency responses received are posted verbatim.
