TeacherLists is online tool to shop for back-to-school supplies

More Michigan schools are using an online tool to help parents navigate back-to-school shopping.Instead of spending hours combing through store aisles looking for specific items to fill a child’s school supply list, parents can utilize TeacherLists, an online platform that links a digitized school supply list with pre-filled shopping carts at retail giants like Amazon, Target, Walmart and Jet.com. This year, 567 Michigan schools are using the platform.”Our school district started using TeacherLists.com several years ago as a way to centralize the school supply lists and wish lists for all our classrooms from preschool through 12th grade,” says Sarah Ross-Koves, who teaches psychology and AP English literature at Carson City-Crystal High School north of Lansing. “With one link, we can share with parents through e-mail and social media. Our back-to-school welcome letters don’t usually get mailed out to parents until the middle of August when many of the back-to-school sales have already passed. With TeacherLists the updates happen before school gets out, so parents have access as soon as they are ready.”
