Back to School Supplies Program

Every year, students need adequate supplies to be successful in school. The Back-to-School Supplies Program seeks to ensure EACH student is prepared, even if a family is experiencing financial hardship.


You can pick up supplies during Back-to-School Nights across the district. Simply stop by the school your child will be attending for the 2023/2024 academic year during the times listed below. Ask for the School Supplies Program or to speak with the school social worker.  Supplies may also be accessed throughout the year via the school social worker.  For general questions regarding the supplies program, contact Reta Johnson at or 952-975-7030.
