A state audit says the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind needs to correct several problems, including money management and lax computer security.
Superintendent Nancy Armstrong responded by saying the school is a unique state agency and its requirements differ from those of other agencies.
Armstrong suggested that it be measured against the benchmarks of local school divisions.
A report from the state Auditor of Public Accounts says the school's information technology structure lacks risk management and contingency plans. The audit report also says the school lacks control over construction progress and spending.
