One option that we have tried to get our district to embrace would be the district purchasing in bulk. Parents in our district who have talked about this are willing to pay for the supplies. We believe if the district purchased 500 boxes of crayons, 1,000 one inch binders, and 5,000 pencils they would get them at a lower price point than individual families can purchase them at. Of course we have told this can't be done.

I agree with Don. The cuts need to come from the top. We have large classes, fewer teachers aids to assist students in need, and have eliminated programs. The next step is to cut administrators and reduce benefits.
