Today, August 1, was traditionally the day when teachers could start spending their Teacher's Choice money for supplies for the upcoming school year. However, I didn't get a celebratory text from the UFT this morning or an email nor did my wife who is still very much active. I looked on line and I didn't see anything either. The DOE Teacher's Choice page is gone and the UFT has information from last school year.
Did this program just quietly end? Apparently not as a reader sent us a comment with a link that said that the City Council passed the funding for Teacher's Choice at last year's level.
Why no information then from the UFT or the Department of Education?
