Be Prepared When School Begins
At the high school level, teachers do not issue supply lists by school grades. Individual teachers list their course-specific supply expectations in their syllabi, which they distribute the first day or week of the school year. Many teachers request a course fee and may buy some of these supplies with that fee.
In general, however, students should have the following supplies every day:
- Pen or Pencil
- Notebook or folder for each class
Other supplies and equipment that may be helpful:
- Markers or colored pencils
- Post It notes
- Index cards
- Paper clips
- Correction tape or fluid
- Ruler or straight edge
- Graphing calculator
The annual Tennessee Sales Tax Holiday weekend is a great time to shop for school and art supplies, clothing, and even computers.
