    Our home and school gives out money.
    We have 13 elementary schools.
    I know that many receive nothing, we get $50, another school gets $200, and the other one I know of gets $500!!! So not fair:(
    We are public, the district gets us supplies, but no money to spend as we wish.

    private-300 (depends on the year and auction) this is for whatever we want then other items are replaced as needed. I will miss this when I switch to public, but have stocked up on a lot of my own stuff over the years.

    Public - I get $175 to spend from the district warehouse. Our students don't bring any school supplies. I have to make that cover glue, crayons, construction/drawing paper, markers, tape, etc. for the whole year. It's only about $8 per student, so I end up using a lot of my own $$ too.

    Public- $800

    However, this is a self-contained life skills class K-5. It's a regional program with 12 students and 6 assistants. I feel very fortunate for all the support I will be getting.

    Charter $100.00

    General office supplies are provided by the school and students have a supply list that covers most items that are needed.

    Public

    I get $185 to order from the district catalog. I have to buy all the paper I will use for copies, ALL OF IT. I also have to provide lined paper, glue, rulers, scissors, etc etc. So after I spent $100 on paper, and another $25 on construction paper, I still don't think I have enough. I spent alot of my own money to make up for the supplies I could not afford out of budget.

    Public-$350

    I guess the state of Idaho decided this year to give teachers $350. I might also get $150 from a fundraiser carnival they did last year-the teacher didn't come back so they said I would get his money. I didn't think I'd get anything!

    It would have been nice to know before I had already gone out and spent that much money!

    Public - none

    You can request funds from our PTO for specific items, but it has to be approved by the principal first and then the PTO board.

    private- we get $350, plus another $20 for each child in the class. So $610 this year. But--- our school has no set curriculum except for math. So I buy all guided reading books, science curriculum materials, etc.

    We get $100 per teacher and about 5-10 thousand each year to spend as a department on ancillary materials.
