With the shift to Distance Learning, many teachers and students were left without the tools and resources needed to teach and learn. To ensure learning doesn’t stop for their students, the average teacher spent $253 of their own money on Distance Learning materials. 

Not only are teachers purchasing what they need to connect with their students virtually, they are also making the extra effort to ensure their students have access to the supplies they need to succeed from home. According to our recent teacher spending survey of nearly 4,000 teachers, 70% of teachers said they have dropped off or mailed items to their students’ homes for Distance Learning.

“Due to remote learning, I had to mail weekly assignments to my younger students. I spent more than  $150 on mailing supplies and assignments. I also had to take paper, crayons, pencils, and rulers to my students, and purchase an online academic resource to supplement student learning. To continue teaching my students remotely, I will need to purchase a new printer/scanner, copy paper, and a portable white board. Additional funding would certainly help!”
