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.

    EFHC will offer $200,000 for this initiative, which the HCDE Board of Education allocated from its annual budget. The program aims to limit the personal cost teachers incur when buying materials to supplement the curriculum. 



  • *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
