Rural & Low Income School

The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance to rural districts to assist them in meeting the state's definition of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP).

Districts do not compete, but rather are entitled to funds if they meet basic requirements.  Eligibility is restructed by statute.

Grant Money

This year Zuni Public Schools received about $25,100.00 for school year 2020-2021. These funds were applied to areas such as Parental Involvement activities, Safe Drug Free activities, and Teacher Recruitment and Retention.  This is the year for adoption of new Math textbooks and part of the funding will be used to purchase the textbooks or consumable workbooks.
