It’s time to find a school supply you can count on.
A new survey from the Center for Education Finance and Policy finds that more than half of high school students surveyed believe they’ll have to find an extra classroom in their new school district.
The survey also found that, while the majority of respondents were aware of the potential shortages of supplies, many were not confident they could find them.
“I know the teachers are going to have to work extra hours to meet their needs,” said freshman student Lauren LePage, who attends Roosevelt High School in New York City.
“It is really hard to believe they’re going to be able to do that.
But the schools are really hurting.
They need to do a better job, they need to be more responsive.”
The Center for Educational Finance and Security (CEFS) conducted the survey with the Helping Students Succeed Project and the National Center for School Improvement (NCSI), and surveyed more than 2,000 students in grades 6 through 12.
The results are based on responses from the students, teachers, and principals surveyed.
“Students want to know if they can get the supplies they need, so they are concerned about being able to get to school,” said Catherine O’Neil, an associate professor of education finance at Cornell University and lead author of the study.
“There are some good resources out there that can help students find what they need and get to the classroom, but not all of them are very effective.”
The survey also included information about school closures, the cost of textbooks, and the impact of school closals on students.
Students were asked about the cost and impact of each school closure on their learning and the quality of instruction they receive.
“When you’re in the midst of a crisis, you want to make sure you have access to everything,” said LePage.
“If I was going to go back to school, I’d want a lot more than just what was on the list.
I need to get a lot of the supplies I need.”
Some schools are seeing higher costs to bring in supplies due to the closure of schools.
Last year, the New York State Department of Education released a report finding that schools in New Jersey were closing more than 3,000 schools due to budget cuts and a shortage of textbooks.
A recent study by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities found that states across the country have faced increased student dropouts due to school closess.
The new survey found that students have also been asking if supplies can be transferred from their current school district to another.
“The schools are still looking for the best way to move supplies around, and some are seeing that as the only way to get the best return on their investment,” said O’Neill.
“Students are still asking these questions, and it is an opportunity for the states to work together to improve supply.
But some states are not doing enough to ensure that these students have access and have access that they can count upon to get through the school year.”
In addition to the supply crisis, some states have closed some public schools due, in part, to budget shortfalls.
In 2017, more than a third of all schools in Mississippi closed because of budget shortbacks.
The state’s Department of Health also closed one-third of its schools.
Other states are also experiencing financial pressure from students who are seeking to move to more affordable schools.
In 2016, students in Florida had to make up the difference in tuition with a $2,500 increase to pay for the cost-sharing.
Last summer, a student from Virginia’s Washington University School of Law took the extraordinary step of using her college savings to move from Fairfax County, Virginia, to a school that is much closer to her home in Charlottesville, Virginia.
