The Corvallis School District educates over 6,000 students in grades K-12. Similar to all public school districts, we have traditionally provided back to school supply lists each summer. Starting in 2016, we took a closer look at that practice and learned that those supply expenses quickly added up. In order to lessen the back to school financial burden, our district began to reevaluate and shorten required school supply lists.
For the 2019-20 school year, students are NOT required to purchase supplies for school.
All general classroom supplies (e.g. pencils, glue, crayons) have been funded by our district and purchased in bulk. For 2019-20, each school will provide a streamlined list of personal student supplies. Typical personal supplies for students include a backpack, water bottle, and P.E. clothing for middle and high school students. If you are interested in donating items from school wish lists, please drop them off at the school office.
Please visit your school website for personal supply lists and contact the school office if confidential assistance with personal student supplies is needed. School offices will re-open for summer hours on August 5.
