Award Funds for Classroom Materials - The SDE is prohibited from awarding cash or gift cards so awards will be distributed as funds for classroom materials. The distribution of the award will go to the school district. Teachers are free to purchase any classroom supplies up to the amount of the award. There are no restrictions on the types of materials or classroom supplies purchased by the classroom teacher. Art teachers will be permitted to purchase and disseminate $50 worth of materials for one student (or shared amongst multiple students) in addition to the $300 lesson award for classroom materials award.
