School Year 2020-2021 FAQ’s about Florida Teacher Supply Assistance Program Money – “Lead Money” 1. Q: Are all teachers eligible to receive this payment? A: An eligible employee for purposes of the Florida Teachers Classroom Supply Assistance Program is a certified teacher employed by a public school district or a public charter school in that district on or before September 1 of each year whose full-time or job-share responsibility is the classroom instruction of students in prekindergarten through grade 12, including full-time media specialists and certified school counselors serving students in prekindergarten through grade 12, who are funded through the Florida Education Finance Program. A “job-share” classroom teacher is one of two teachers whose combined full-time equivalent employment for the same teaching assignment equals one full-time classroom teacher. 2. Q: What items are allowable/unallowable? A: Under state statute, only instructional supplies are allowable. Supplies are daily use items that would normally be expended or used up within a year, and have no inherent value for someone to steal. Examples of Allowable: Paper, pens, pencils, highlighters, classroom books, art and crafts materials, charts, maps, globes, posters, flash cards, ink and toner for printers, math manipulatives, DVD/CD for students use, electric pencil sharpeners, protective smocks, inexpensive musical instruments, flash drives, clothing (hats and t-shirts) for students only with the school logo to be used for school activities, food items that are used in classroom instruction and indicated on teacher’s lesson plans. Examples of Unallowable: Services, memberships, subscriptions, internet subscriptions, travel, conferences, planners for teachers (or any items for teachers), furniture, rugs, shelving, or compartments for storage. The item must be instructional that benefits the students. Absolutely no cameras, computers, tablets, printers, scanners, laser pointers or Amazon fire sticks or Alexa. Ink & Toner for printers are allowed, but not printers. 3. Q: What happens if I purchase an unallowable item? A: You will need to try and return the item, if the vendor allows. If not, you will have to pay the funds to the district either with a personal check or a payroll deduction. The item(s) you pay will become your personal property. Items that are available on ClassWallet do not automatically qualify for eligibility. It is the employee’s responsibility to ascertain that items purchased meet the District stated criteria for eligible supplies.
