State audit critical of Wayne Central School District transportation management plan

A state audit is raising questions over how Wayne Central School District has managed its transportation department operations in recent years.

The audit came from the state comptroller’s office, with several recommendations being handed down.

State officials said the objective of the audit was to determine whether officials there had developed a process to routinely evaluate the overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the transportation department’s operations.


Key Findings

District officials did not develop a process to routinely evaluate the overall efficiency and cost-effectiveness of the transportation department’s operations.

  • The Board of Education (Board) did not adopt comprehensive written policies for the transportation department’s operations.
  • District officials did not maintain detailed records for the transportation department or develop procedures for evaluating the transportation department’s operations.


Key Recommendations

  • Develop and adopt written policies and procedures, including recordkeeping and reporting, to help guide management of the transportation department.
  • Develop standardized procedures to consistently evaluate and monitor the performance of the transportation department’s operations in accordance with Board-adopted policies and procedures.

The audit notes that officials “generally agreed” with recommendations and indicated they would take corrective action.
