Sponsored Post – from the Austin Materials Marketplace
Calling all teachers! Looking for a way to find free materials for your classroom? Have old school supplies that you want to get rid of, but don’t want to throw away? The Austin Materials Marketplace is here to help.
Kind of like a Craigslist for businesses, the Austin Materials Marketplace is an online platform that allows organizations to connect and find reuse opportunities for waste and by-product materials… And the good news is, the marketplace is now open to AISD teachers!
Here’s how it works.
All you have to do to get started is sign up here (and get permission from your principal or administrator). After that, you’ll be able to search for available materials (anything from recycling bins, to foam boards, to filing cabinets) or even create a wish list for things that you’re on the hunt for.
If you’re tight on space in your classroom and are working on some summer cleaning, you can also list materials that you’d like to get rid of on the Austin Materials Marketplace. However, you can only give AISD-owned materials to other AISD teachers/faculty. AISD also does not allow teachers to give away furniture, technology, and other expensive items through the marketplace. More info>>
