    How much do you get each year to buy supplies like paper and printer cartridges? My projector light just burned out and I need to replace it. Unfortunately, it will use most of my yearly allowance for supplies:mad: How much do you get each year?

    $500, but we give $100 for communal paper and toner to the copier.

    So you have to buy all you own paper and pay for copies? Wow! I guess I should feel very lucky:)

    Our school stocks paper in the copiers. Our PTSA reimburses each teacher up to $125 annually. New teachers get $250.

    $300. Plus our P usually as some money for 'big ticket items'...last year my grade level got several rolling book carts with bins and nonfiction texts aligned to our science and SS units.:thumb:

    I think we get $500, and certain amount of copies to make per month (usually it's more than enough). I still have $200 something to use and almost $200 to reimburse (I think that's on top of the $500). Our P can also order big things for us, for example I wanted audio cds for the textbook, and supplemental materials, I know that didn't come from my budget.

    Only $50, but we don't have to include paper or ink or bulbs or any of the essentials like that...that's not included in our $50.

    Nothing.

    The office stocks basic supplies, paper, and ink.

    We don't get anything, but we are provided with ink, paper, bulbs and most other supplies that we need. We get 2800 copies a month using two copy machines.

    We get about $250. Paper, copier supplies, and light bulbs all come from the regular district budget. We aren't limited to a certain number of copies. I don't know what I'd do if we were limited on copying. I don't make many copies, bug everything I run is about 175 copies.

    We don't have to buy paper or ink.

    But my budget is $150 and it takes at least $1000 for a basic (no clay, no special things, just crayons, tempera paint, and construction paper) art program.

    A projector bulb should not be a "supply." It should fall under equipment maintenance. Something breaks in your classroom, it's the school's job to fix it.

    The school owns the projector. The district needs to bear the cost of repairing it when it's broken.

    You could tell them that you generally discard electronics that do not work. Since your projector does not work, you will consider it e-waste and treat it accordingly.

    I'm sorry, but a projector bulb should not come out of your supply budget. That budget is for consumables, not the repair and maintenance of electronic hardware.

    I know I said it twice, but I think it deserves repeating.

    I agree, Sarge. Pretty much like pulling some from each teachers' budget when the cafeteria's mega dishwasher needs repaired. Ridiculous.
