Teacher's Choice Program Renewed
As in the previous year, teachers and other eligible staff will have the opportunity to purchase instructional materials and supplies for use in their classrooms through the Teacher’s Choice Program. Please take note of the increased allocation levels this fiscal year.
To view the titles of teachers and staff who are eligible for the program, and for specific allocation levels for the 2017–18 school year, see the Teacher’s Choice Eligibility Requirements. As noted in the eligibility requirements, high school assistant principals who teach at least one class, certain full-time regular substitute teachers, and Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) instructors are also eligible for these funds and must submit required certification forms by October 13, using the High School Assistant Principal Certification Form or Substitute/ROTC Certification Form as appropriate.
In addition, any staff members who do not want to participate in the Teacher’s Choice Program should complete and submit this Request for Non-Participation (i.e., opt-out form) by October 20. For other key program dates, see here. As a reminder, teachers should retain all receipts and hand them in on the scheduled due date (between December 4, 2017–January 19, 2018), to avoid June payroll deductions.
For updated program guidelines and related forms, see the Teacher’s Choice website. You may also access program FAQs here.
