I am an art teacher in a K-5 elementary school. Our district is site based
management which means that the principal is given x amount of money and
he/she decides who to divy it up. I get about $4,000 from my principal...to
spend anyway I want. This includes supplies, subs, busses for field trips
and repair money for kiln. Then I can ask my PTA for money....some I get,
some I don't. I can also request money from our district coordinator.
Sometimes I get it...sometimes I don't!
My main school is not a full-time position so I go to another school to do 4
over flow classes. In that school which has about 150 more students than we
do, the art budget is $9,000 not including sub days, busses,
