The Finance Department of the Zuni Public School District works with all other district departments as they implement plans, programs, and strategies designed to enhance the educational opportunities and experiences of the students of the district. It is the intent of the Finance Department to manage the budget and finances of the district to ensure that we get the maximum value for each dollar that we receive so as to not deny any student the education that they deserve and desire.
