The Santa Cruz County School Superintendent's Office serves as the fiscal agent to all school districts within our jurisdiction and acts as a liaison to the Arizona Department of Education. Moreover, our role in the Santa Cruz County educational community is to operate as an overseeing financial entity with a vast array of functions. These functions include procedural responsibilities such as budget assistance, auditing, and approving payments of payroll and expense vouchers submitted by school districts. Additionally, we are accountable for apportioning school monies, collaborating with the county treasury, and establishing a network of financial records. In basic terms, the Santa Cruz County Superintendent’s office is the proprietor of financial transactions and appropriately distributes monies for each school district.
