• Image of the 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.

    For this program, 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 at a local online vendor.

    The first 2,000 eligible teachers to register will receive an email with a coupon code and instructions for how to buy the supplies online. Purchases over the $100 credit will be the responsibility of the individual teacher. All supplies will be shipped for free directly to the teacher’s school.

    Eligible teachers can register for the program below.

    Note: Employment at a Harris County school district with a valid work email is required to be eligible for the $100 supply credit. Teachers from schools out of Harris County, at charter schools and at private schools are not eligible for the credit.


    We've reached 2,000 teachers!

    Confirmation and instructions will be sent out via email
    on September 17, 2021.

    Shopping for supplies will be September 20 - November 30. 

    Thank you for registering with us!

    Registration is closed.
