Message From the Superintendent

 

ZPSD Community:

     For those of you that have not heard from me in a while, I wanted to send out a quick letter to the ZPSD community just to make it official:  Today, June 30th will be my last day as Superintendent.  I have taken the same position at Central Consolidated School District.  Although I did not plan on leaving ZPSD anytime soon (as I had two years remaining on my contract and planned on staying beyond), there were a couple of circumstances that at the end of day affected my family and I that we could not overcome.  I am very proud of the things that we accomplished in the four years as superintendent of ZPSD:

 

  1. Taking on the fight to bring more money into the district by challenging the state of New Mexico taking Federal Impact Aid money from Zuni students and winnin!  The district will be receiving additional $5 million dollars (+/-) moving forward on top of what the State of NM gives in SEG.

  2. We have secured full funding for a new middle school.  There will also be money from PSFA for a combined new site for Zuni High and Twin Buttes Cyber Academy.

  3. The Baseball field is 90% completed and the new softball field will have the same features as the baseball field.  The start of the softball project is currently being held up at the tribe.

  4. ZPSD will have at all sites receiving one/two gigabits a second thanks to Redbolt collaboration.  This is especially exciting given the current COVID-19 situation.  This will allow the tribe to then get this service into the community of Zuni.

  5. We were able to get the Zuni religious leaders altogether (for the first time ever in ZPSD history) to collaborate with the district and create a letter to help our students attend school before they attend religious activities.

  6. Alignment of each department to save money, be more productive, and promote collaboration.

  7. Moving Central office and Twin Buttes Cyber Academy from old site to A:shiwi elementary site.  This allowed for the old sites at DY, Twin Buttes, warehouse, Central office to be turned over to the Tribe (pending the tribe paperwork and approval).

  8. All students will have a device for their educational use to start school year 20-21.

 

      I know that I made mistakes and have made some decisions that were not popular.  I get it and own both of those thoughts.   Furthermore, I know that there are people that are very happy to see my family and I leave and understand that as well.  However, there are also people that my family and I have made lasting relationships within the Zuni community that we will continue to keep and cherish.  I want to thank all of you that have reached out to my family and I about this situation (leaving ZPSD).  I also want to thank a couple of board members for their unwavering support of where the district was headed, in the right direction.

 

Respectfully and Elahkwa’,

“To Empower a Community of Learners”

Zuni Public School District

Beginning in 1876 and ending in 1956, United States Government and it's Department of Indian Affairs were responsible for the American culture and English language education of Zuni children. Then in 1956, the Americanizing education was transferred from the United States Government to the New Mexico State Government.

 

During the period from 1956 to 1980, the three existing school sites, that once were operated by the United States Government, were now operated by the Gallup - McKinley County School District which was a State of New Mexico State Government. These school sites were Zuni Elementary, Dowa Yalanne Elementary and Zuni High School. 

 

However, at the start of the 3rd decade of being apart of the GMKC School District, many community people decided that the Zuni students' educational needs were not being met. Therefore during the latter half of the 1970's, the Zuni people started discussions on the need and desire to have their own school district to address the educational problems, that remain unresolved, under the large Gallup McKinley County School District.

Don dehwan illaba. Hom dehwah ukna:we

 

Be honest and trustworthy to one another.  We will help one another. It is your turn.  It is my turn.
