• Purchasing


    The Business Department is the central purchasing agency for the District. The Murphy Elementary School District strives for compliance with all federal and state procurement guidelines and regulations. The primary goal is to provide guidance so our schools and staff can get what they need for classroom instruction, within the constraints of the law. This includes providing service to both our internal customers (end-users) and external users (vendors and community).
