Funding in Texas....
I have nothing to complain about, we are a well off district..but I work hard
to get everything... Computers? I use the lab...I have also learned to get
things by tieing into others peoples budgets. When we purchased Dabbler, I
convinced language arts it would be good to illustrate their writing....When
our budget was cut by 75% I was a real pain. I figure if I pick my battles
carefully...people will listen when I have one. I also make sure the students
don't waste! THis year I made lunch bags to hand out at open house --writing
the names of different needed store bought items on it...asking for one or
more. That is the best thing I have ever done. Parents went above and
beyond! I easily had 300.00 worth of stuff handed in. I even had used sponges
handed in! No matter how needy..people help out. If I need something I
ask or put it into the school newsletter ...I am amazed at how the parents
help out...even if their child is in band!
