So apparently, on any supply list that we give to students, even an expected materials list, we have to put on this huge block paragraph of text that starts off with: "Please note that you or your students is not required to purchase, donate, or contribute any of the requested items on the school supply list," in huge bolded text on top of the entire list. Then it has to be signed by the principal. Not only is this annoying because I've already run my syllabi and supply lists, but I already have problems with funding materials for my classroom and students not bringing in notebooks or binders. I basically only 'require' a binder, a composition book, and writing utensils, and yes I keep extras for those who can't afford it, but that's only a few students a year. I'm having a nightmare where having read this giant text first thing at the beginning of a supply list, parents are going to assume that I am responsible for providing any and all of the materials for class for all of my students (about 200 students), meanwhile we don't get any funding to pay for any of this. Does this happen in your state?
