RE: [teacherartexchange] need help with budgets

My suggestion next time is to give a dollar amount per kid. Makes the
administration think (and try to multiple in their heads, ha ha). For
example in our high school we have 4 art teachers and we each get
approximately $10.00 per student per semester (we have semester courses).
Then you segue into the conversation how much art supplies cost by saying
something like "you know, brushes cost....", or "1 jar of glaze can set a
budget back $6.00". I DO know that what we get is very generous, but I think
you get my point on HOW to say how much you need and how to justify that

Subject: [teacherartexchange] need help with budgets

Hello all,
I recently interviewed at a high school that had
NOTHING in the way of supplies for an art class. I
asked the principal abt the budget and she told me
they didnt have one and asked ME how much I would need
to purchase all the supplies for a school yr. Needless
to say, I had to guess at what I would need, as I
didnt really know HOW much to ask for, as I never did
a budget before.
All you experienced art teachers out there, can you
help me in how to answer this question the next time I
am asked? (I didnt get the job by the way, perhaps I
asked for too much?)
thanks very much
