The finance department is responsible for most aspects of schools and districts money management, including budgeting, accounting, payroll, accounts payable, and purchasing.  our goal is to accurately provide the schools, students, and the community with a budget, financial planning, and related services in order to carry out the responsibilities of the district.  

The finance 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).
