Murphy School District 21 will, in fact, be able to fund a full school year for students, families, and parents.
It was recently reported that the district would be running out of funding, however significant progress and success has been made in balancing the budget and properly coding the budget that will ensure the school has the appropriate funding for a full school year.
School resumes Monday, March 19th, following Spring Break.
The goals going forward are to continue to balance the budget, continue to update budget coding, and have a successful full academic year for students, families, and teachers.
Murphy School District will continue to provide timely progress reports to parents, staff, and community.
TAX CREDIT DONATION
Taxpayers filing in Arizona have the unique opportunity to redirect a portion of STATE TAX DOLLARS they already pay to public education. The credit allows an Arizona taxpayer to contribute $200 per individual tax return or $400.00 per joint tax return to a school's extracurricular program.
Contributions are to the school of your choice. Murphy Elementary Schools has many extracurricular actitivies or programs that can benefit from these funds! Extracurricular activity means only optional activity that supplements the education program of the school. Activities such as field trips, after-school enrichment programs, character education, clubs, athletics, visual and performing arts, and in-state or out-of-state trips solely for competitive events can be funded with tax credit money. Trips or events that are recreational amusement, or tourist activities CANNOT be funded with tax credit money.
