We have 3 Title I teachers, 6 Reading Recovery teachers paid by Title I, 2 Title I teachers in preschool. Last year we each had $700 to spend, and we were warned recently that spending would be less this year, let's start with $500 apiece and see how it goes. We got another email yesterday from the director, she got new information, and budget cuts are going so deep that all supplies may be cut, and maybe even some salary. Salary cuts mean the regular budget picks them up, not that anyone would be let go. She also said to go ahead and make out requisitions, but prioritize them, and to write out an explanation/justification of why we need supplies. Why we need supplies? I guess if my essay wins the board will approve buying my supplies from general budget. I've never seen a year this lean, but I'm fairly recent, not an old-timer. I can just bet you, though, that classroom teachers won't have their budgets cut to nothing.
