Teacher’s Choice for the 2021-2022 School Year
Thanks to the UFT’s advocacy for its members, funding for the Teacher’s Choice program was fully restored for the 2021-22 school year.
The landmark City Council program, initiated by the UFT more than 25 years ago, reimburses educators — as determined by title — for the purchase of classroom and school supplies of their choice. This year, personal protective equipment is an allowable expense.

Substitute teachers, school psychologists, school social workers, school counselors and school secretaries will receive the same amount as a regularly appointed employee in the same job title.
The purchasing period for eligible supplies runs from Aug. 1, 2021, through mid-January. To receive reimbursement through Teacher’s Choice, you must submit receipts as proof of purchase along with a DOE Statement of Purpose/Accountability form.
You will receive your Teacher’s Choice funds in your last November or first December paycheck.
