I posted yesterday asking if items purchased with instructional funds are considered school property or personal property, and it seems that they are school property. To make a long story short, I work at a new location where we only receive $200 a year in instructional money. I want to use novels in my classroom, but $200 simply isn't enough. I was going to start a GoFundMe to raise funds for a classroom library, because I've seen teachers (not from my county but close) posting GoFundMe fundraisers online. Does anyone have experience in running an online fundraiser? If so, did you need approval from your school admin, or did you just do it on your own? Lastly, if anyone can recommend some places to get reasonably priced sets of novels, please let me know!
