I'm a Kindergarten teacher in Washington State. I've worked at two schools. The first one I worked at we were struggling for supplies. I watched over our Kleenex very closely and made sure that my Kindergarteners were only using them for real runny noses (and not just to play with the Kleenex.) We did ok with soap, paper towels, desks, chairs, etc. But if my students didn't have crayons, glue sticks, etc, there were no supplies to replace them with. I used to go crazy at the beginning of the school year buying supplies for my students. I would spend at least $200 out of my pocket for my students' supplies. But then again, I was at a poorer school. The school I am at now is a lot better about supplies. The school supplies all the Kindergarteners' supplies such as crayons, and I get many things that I wouldn't have gotten at my other school. This is mostly because our PTA can support us a little better because there is more parental support. Hope that helps ;)

Originally Answered: What school supplies should I buy for senior year of high school? 10 points best answer?
- No. 2 pencils
- Mechanical pencils
- Colored pencils
- Pencil sharpener (hand-held with a top to collect shavings)
- A large pink eraser
- Ballpoint pens (Get a few red ink ones too, because some teachers have students do peer editing.)
- Spiral-bound or composition notebooks
- Loose-leaf notebook paper (Teachers can be picky about paper. Some ask that students use the college-ruled variety.)
- A ruler with English and metric measurements
- Several three-ring binders (Some teachers require that a binder be used exclusively for their class.)
- A three-hole punch (a regular one or one that fits in a three-ring binder)
- A pencil case that fits in a binder
- Binder dividers (The kinds with pockets are good for loose papers.)
- Pocket folders
- Folders that fit in binders
- A calendar for scheduling assignments
- A sturdy, supportive backpack (Some schools do not permit rolling backpacks because of space considerations, so check with your school before considering this option.)
- Two combination locks (If the school lockers do not have built-in locks, you might need one for the hallway and one for the gym.)
- Flash Drive to save any important documents
- Index cards, ruled and unruled (These are great for making flash cards.)
- A calculator (Check with the math teacher first before investing in an expensive one. Graphing calculators, for example, are required in many high school math classes. Teachers advise parents not to buy a calculator with more functions than students will use.)
*****WHAT TO BRING ON THE FIRST DAY****
Folder - for all the syllabuses, rules, guidelines, & supply lists that your teacher passes out
Pencil - Just in case your asked to do a small activity that involves writing
Paper - Again for the small activity
Locker items - If your locker was already given out to you then it's best to bring your lock & throughout the week you can bring your locker items.
Binder - Just a 1"
Backpack - To carry everything and sometimes teachers give out textbooks
Money - For lunch of something
--And any girl/boy accessories that you may need. (ipod, phones, makeup, brushes, etc.)
Well my school was in Columbus, NJ (Northern Burlington Regional) and they definitely had enough supplies for everybody. You'd get the stingy who'd say that paper was low, but no limitations were ever set.
Soap? Never an issue I don't remember.
Desks and the PE were in good condition. Nothing broken that I remember. I just graduated class of 2007.
Nope, no problems.
But that's what $15,000ps would do for a school

I'm a mom to a 1st grader who attends public school in Southern California. I'm extremely happy with our school and school district as a whole. Yes, we have all the needed items (in awesome condition) to accommodate all students. Our school is clean and well kept.
The schools in my district do not struggle for supplies. We have many fund raisers a year and most importantly, parents are very involved in the school and their children's education.

Originally Answered: Is $60 enough for school supplies?
$60 will probably be just enough for all that stuff if you're smart about how you shop. My advice to you is to get a backpack that costs no more than $30, and then buy those other supplies. The other supplies put together will probably cost you around $20-$25
