Purchasing & Supply Ordering
The process for ordering supplies will be similar to last year, with two different paths depending on the nature of the supplies. For those traditional teacher supplies (Tools for Teaching) we have ordered each year, orders will be placed directly into the Ed-Data portal. For student supplies (Tools for Learning) the Google form will be the way to order (see below). Read the explanation memo. We will place a large order on July 1, 2018 which will allow for classroom delivery prior to the start of the school year. Supplies that are ordered after June 30 might not arrive in time for the new school year. Orders placed after June 30 are not guaranteed to arrive by the start of school; please allow several weeks for delivery.
Requests for traditional teacher supplies for next year will be made through the Ed-Data system. Most elementary school teachers have an allocation of $150 and Junior High and High School teachers have an allocation of $50. Your username and password will remain the same as it was last year. For these type of supplies, ordering is expected to be completed prior to September 2018. The website is Ed-Data (http://edsiq.ed-data.com/login). You received a message from Ed-Data last week indicating that the system is ready for 2018-2019 school year ordering.
Ordering Teacher Supplies: Tools for Teaching
Ordering Student Supplies: Tools for Learning
As of March 1st, the District’s spending freeze for the remainder of the 2018-2019 school year is in place.
The District remains committed to the provision of the “Tools for Learning” for all our students. As we prepare for next year, our third year of it, we are making some adjustments that we think can increase the effectiveness and efficiency of the initiative:
- Grade-levels and departments are asked to develop common requests. The window for these orders will be June.
- We will place a large order on July 1, 2018 which will allow for classroom delivery prior to the start of the school year. Supplies that are ordered after June 30 might not arrive in time for the new school year. Orders placed after June 30 are not guaranteed to arrive by the start of school; please allow several weeks for delivery.
- Remember the idea is to have classroom sets of all materials and supplies so that students have them when they need them. This does not mean issuing all supplies to students at the beginning of the year, although some things such as binders, folders, pencil boxes, etc. might be issued at the beginning of the year.
