Tools for Teachers

About the Program

  • Tools for Teachers logo

    Tools for Teachers is a partnership between the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) and Education Foundation of Harris County (EFHC), designed to support Harris County school district teachers with classroom supplies at the beginning of the school year.

    In the program's second year, the HCDE Board of Education allocated $200,000 from its annual budget to directly benefit local teachers. The money will pay for 2,000 teachers to buy $100 worth of classroom supplies through an online vendor.


  • *The first 2,000 teachers who register and meet the following qualifications will be eligible to receive the $100 credit:

    1. Teachers must teach grades PK – 12.
    2. Teachers must work in a Harris County public school. This includes ISD-authorized charter schools (independent charter schools are not eligible).
    3. Teachers must register with a valid Harris County ISD email address.

    School supplies will be shipped to each teacher's school address free of charge. (Teachers who wish to have supplies shipped to their home address will be charged $12.)
