Who Can Shop?

Red Apple Supplies, a service program of the Education Foundation of Palm Beach County, opened its doors to select Palm Beach County Title I schools this past Spring. This resource store provides teachers free school supplies year round for the economically disadvantaged students attending these schools.

 

School Eligibility

We understand the majority of schools in our district are eager to participate in this new and important program. Please review the following for information regarding school participation.

Red Apple Supplies began its operation with a small number of highest needs schools and will build our service capacity annually. Priority criteria for participating schools includes:

  • Public schools within the School District of Palm Beach County with a very high percentage of Title 1 students enrolled (95% and above)
  • District Accountability Schools
  • Schools of highest need that are very motivated to assist the Foundation in organizing their teachers and providing feedback for program evaluation and outcomes measurement.

If you would like your school considered for shopping in the 2017-18 school year, Red Apple Supplies will review requests and inquiries from motivated Title I schools with a student FRL rate of 95% and above. Please contact Programs@EducationFoundationPBC.org to discuss requirements. Our future goal is to grow to help as many classrooms as possible to meet their resource needs.
