Introducing

Electronic Supply Reimbursement Billhead

Big picture

Dear Unit A Employees:


In an effort to keep our operations running while we are teleworking and to ensure that you receive a timely payment, the Office of Human Resources and the City Accounting Department are introducing the electronic Supply Reimbursement Billhead, which can be located in TalentEd Records under Blank Docs. This form is temporarily replacing the current paper version.


With this Blank Document, you will be able to submit classroom supplies for reimbursement via TalentEd Records, and all departments will be able to approve it electronically. However, as noted below, please make sure that you retain the original receipts and submit those once school resumes!

Per the CBA:

Pursuant to Article 54 of the Unit A Contract, a unit employee may be reimbursed up to $100 for appropriately documented out-of-pocket expenditures for classroom supplies or materials in the fiscal year it was incurred.

The procedures for awarding supply reimbursement:


  • Funds shall become available on a “first-in, first-out” (hereafter, “FIFO”) basis for supplies purchased beginning July 1 of each fiscal year and submitted by May 1.

  • If the pool of supply reimbursement funds has been exhausted, then further supply reimbursement requests shall be denied by the District.

What do you need?

If you are eligible to receive the teacher’s supply reimbursement of up to $100, you will need to submit the following:


  • Electronic Supply Reimbursement Billhead
  • Attach proof of payment and cost
