Teachers Choice – spend it now

March 9, 2009 am31 8:46 am

New York City teachers received $150 this year for Teachers Choice, a program that gives us money to buy supplies for the classroom. Most of us received our checks (direct deposit, or debit card) in December. The deadline for spending the money is fast approaching: March 20 (extended from the original March 15)

Does every building have one person that forgets, and needs to return the money? Don’t let it be you!

Here’s a fuller description of the program.

Here’s some commentary on the reduction in the the amount.

And here’s the accountability forms, in case your school secretary does not have them handy.

    Can you please cite your source for the Teacher’s Choice extension date? I am unable to find any other location for this information.

      Here’s the link from the DoE.

      And here’s the text (3rd paragraph):

      All individuals on staff as of November 1, 2008 in each of the categories listed (click here), who provide services to NYC public school children are eligible to participate in this year’s (FY’09) program. Eligible participants will receive allocations in the amounts indicated in accordance with all guidelines, procedures and forms provided on this website for the duration of the program, which has now been extended through March 20, 2009. However, all accountability reports and original receipts for items purchased must still be submitted to your principal/supervisor by March 31, 2009.
