Chamber of Commerce Forms Committee to Help Provide Funds to Teachers
02/10/2010

The Liberal Chamber of Commerce Education Committee has formed a subcommittee called the Business and Teachers Together (B.A.T.T.) committee to find a way to help teachers in the community.

The B.A.T.T. will be heading up the Teacher Classroom Assistance Program to help get school supplies for the teachers and students. The Chamber recognizes that with the struggling economy that it is more difficult for teachers to continue to cover the cost of supplies out of their own pocket.

What the B.A.T.T. will do is give funds to teachers to help with items such as educational games, classroom decorations, and reward programs to help encourage classroom excellence.

The teachers will be required to sign a release form holding them accountable for showing the receipts to the B.A.T.T to show they were spent appropriately before the teacher will be considered for additional assistance for the next school year.

The program will be very helpful to teachers such as Garfield Elementary first grade teacher Amy Ricks who said she spends alot out of her own money during a typical school year.

"Most of my students are unable to provide basic school supplies for themselves, so I can easily spend $200.00 a year of my own money for these supplies, which includes pencils, crayons, and glue."

The 2010-2011 school year will be the kickoff for the program, but the Liberal Chamber of Commerce will be seeking sponsors in the near future to help make this possible.

The USD 480 administration has given their approval and the Board of Education stated how gracious they were to Chamber representative Cheryl Collins who answered questions about the program at Monday's regularly scheduled meeting.
