I have a question concerning art budgets. This is my third year
teaching elementary art in Houston ISD. The school I am at has approx.
1200 students. My 1st year the budget allowed $850 for supplies, last
year $122 (I was also allowed $500 from Kids Now coupon books), and this
year I will get $200 (with no fundraising). I am hitting the bottom of
the barrel of art supplies. I have to write at least 3 lesson plans per
grade level to accomodate for lack of supplies. Am I being a baby or is
this how most schools fund art programs? I find myself spending my own
money for supplies. If any one has ideas, I could use a few.
