We want to ensure that you're always aware of your teachers' DonorsChoose activity. Sign up here for free, periodic reporting on all the projects posted or funded in your district, including line-item breakdowns of every item delivered to your schools.
Share your district's technology policy so we can help teachers request compatible items. Whenever teachers in your district request devices like computers or tablets, we will display your district's guidelines and can link to your full IT policy.
We want to keep your principals in the loop when projects are fully funded and materials are shipped to their schools. Please attach a current contact list of the principals in your district with the following information: School Name, Principal Name, and Email Address.
Collaborating with teachers on their DonorsChoose projects not only helps them feel supported, but also gives you the chance to encourage teachers to create projects in line with your district priorities. These resources will help you do just that.
