Where are you? This sounds terrible! I don't know how you can do science investigations without the materials and yet you have to wait over 1/3 of the school year to get what you need and are blamed for lack of "hands-on or fun enough" lessons????
Failing schools such as the one described. by the OP need a major shakeup. The financial situation needs some serious inquiry- one doesn't simply run out of money for copies unexpectedly. The administration and school board should be scrutinized,and yes, there needs to be some accountability at EVERY level for poor performance.
That is so scary! How can you possibly be productive if you do not have the things you need to teach! So sad!
Wow! That is pathetic!. Like one poster just stated that is just the beginning of reality for public ed. Funding for public ed will be on the back burner and charter and private schools will receive more funding.
I am so upset at your situation. How do they want teachers to educate without the proper resources! Teachers already make just enough and they want the teachers to fund for missing books!?
Reminds me of my previous job! I had to put money into school resources for my classroom because "a shortage of cash."

23 teachers called out from work in the district where I work because they refused to work with the new money hungry superintendent that believes in spreading funding into private schools rather than public ed.

Oh Wow! For science!!! I currently teach math but have taught science. No copies? Do everything online?? Unless everyone is assigned a computer and everyone has a course online like ALEKS, there is no way that tests and other materials can easily be done online. It should be considered an online school and all students should have a course they take online. And yet your principal says there are not enough "hands on" activities. Hands on things take materials/packets/writing that cost money. Sounds like a looney principal. Things get lost, text books get lost by students because they forget to bring them back. That's not the teachers fault. I'm sorry for the experience you are dealing with. My thoughts go out to you and others there and hope it gets better.
