Notice from Yukon Department of Education to parents/guardians on school supplies:
For the 2016-17 school year, the Yukon government provided one-time funding to School Councils to provide school supplies for Yukon students. This funding is now complete and will not be renewed. It took many hours of staff and volunteer work to administer, organize and distribute and we would like to thank all those who worked hard on this initiative. The total cost for the supplies was $569, 000.00 and after careful consideration, we did not feel it was the best use of resources to support Yukon students.
Schools will return to the previous process. Many provide a list of the school supplies that students will need in the fall with the end of year report cards or on their websites. Parents are responsible for ensuring their children have these supplies.
We are committed to making sure that any families that need help to provide supplies for their child will have support from Yukon Education. If you require assistance with providing school supplies for your child for the 2017-2018 school year, please contact your local school the week of August 22, 2017, or later if required. There will be plans in place at the schools to support your requests.
Many schools save extra school supplies at the end of the year and as last year’s initiative was unusual, we anticipate there may be some unused school supplies. All schools are happy to accept any unused school supplies and redistribute them for use as needed. We encourage recycling of any unused items. School superintendents will be connecting with their area schools to determine how best to provide any needed support in the fall.
Please direct any questions or concerns about school supplies to the Department of Education.
