Supply Orders for 2024-2025

Over the next few weeks, you will be making important decisions relative to the purchasing of items for next year. Please make those decisions based on the school district's vision, mission, and curriculum goals.

Order what you NEED for next year.  IF it is something you WANT, please visit with your Principal or Supervisor. 

 It is recommended that teachers use School Specialty.  Please be aware that pricing and vendors on Amazon change all the time. Provide as much information when submitting a request from Amazon ( please print a copy of the item with the information and attach to the purchase order) and pay close attention to the inventory on the Amazon site when preparing the order.  If the item is out of stock no substitutions will be made.  Joy or Abby will get a hold of you to come in and discuss changes.

All instructional supply spreadsheets are due by April 12th.

How to Submit Your Orders. Staff members must use a Google Sheet to submit supply requests.  It is recommended that staff create their own Google Sheet form for simplicity purposes. Click here to go to a forced copy of  Google supply/equipment sheet.  The link will ask you to make a copy, this will allow you to complete it online.  Once filled out, print and submit to your building supervisor along with all other necessary documentation needed for ordering. YOU MUST COMPLETE A SEPERATE SHEET FOR EACH PLACE  YOU ARE ORDERING FROM. 


  1. Budget requests must be based on actual needs to support the educational program in existence or as planned for the next school year.
  2. Since funds are always limited, priorities must be established within departments, subject areas, school buildings and on a district-wide basis.
  3. Requests should be based on current inventories and projected use for the upcoming school year. This may require that you contact your building principal or counselor to find out enrollment estimates for your next year’s classes.
  4. A request that is unusual or particularly costly in nature must include written justification.

Make sure each Google worksheet form contains all information necessary to place the order:

  1. Full name, address, phone number and fax number of recommended supplier;
  2. Quantity, Item Description, Color, Catalog Number and Page Number, etc.;
  3. A brief description of need or purpose;
  4. Price of item (actual price, if available, or your best estimate);
  5. Line item code #;
  6. Estimated shipping costs must be included in the Grand Total.  If you do not know your shipping costs, add 10%.
  7. Do not include sales tax; the school district is tax exempt.

End of Year Inventory Sheets 

Staff members are not allowed to exchange, trade or bequeath any school property with/to another teacher, building or department unless permission is granted from administration. Equipment assigned to a building, area or room must stay put and be listed on the Google Document inventory sheet that is required for checkout. There have been times when a departing teacher gave his/her chair or desk to another teacher, which creates an inventory dilemma. If administration grants permission for an items location to be changed, this must be communicated so that the inventory can be updated. 

Disposal of property requires board approval

If you have surplus equipment that you would like to dispose of or removed from your area, a list of items deemed as “SURPLUS” should be turned into your Building Principal prior checkout time. We will make arrangements through your building principal to take care of your request.

The board may dispose of school property in any manner it deems to be in the best interests of the district. Disposing of property requires a majority vote (KSA 72-3216(d)).
