    Each teacher in my school (18) gets $500. We place our orders in March for the following year. If someone wants something during the year they more than likely get it. We can also order equipment (teacher chairs, chart paper holders, bookcases, etc) which comes from another fund. We do not order scissors, pencils, erasers, glue, construction paper, marble notebooks, etc. as that is ordered for us. We tell the office how much we think we will need for our class. I can also submit items I buy for special craft projects and holidays to petty cash. I basically spend very, very little of my own money.

    In our school each department has a budget for curriculum materials. Technology can be purchased with those funds, but usually it's not. Textbooks also come from another area. Office supplies are usually ordered by the Department Chair through the main office. I'm not sure how other Department Chair's did it, but I would always order a set amount of supplies for each teacher and any other requests they may had. The office supplies are very basic though, we don't even get good pens. I buy those myself.

    We don't get any money, but have a supply room where we can we find tape, sticky notes, markers, paper clips, glue sticks, staples, construction paper, pencils, ink pens, printer ink, various colors of cardstock, white and colored copier paper, white board markers, overhead projector pens, permanent markers, posterboard, brads, index cards, and folders.

    We used to get $100 from PTO, but not anymore.
