Teacher's Choice Allotment for School Counselors for the 2022-23 School Year

News Stories

Thanks to the UFT’s advocacy for its members, school counselors will receive $110 for Teacher's Choice for the 2022-23 school year, the same amount as last 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. 

The purchasing period for eligible supplies runs from Monday, Aug. 1, through mid-January. You will receive your Teacher’s Choice funds in your last November or first December paycheck.

To receive reimbursement through Teacher’s Choice, you must submit receipts as proof of purchase along with a DOE Statement of Purpose/Accountability form. The DOE will take back the money from those who don’t file that form and submit valid receipts.

For more information about the program, please see the Teacher’s Choice section of the UFT website. If you have any questions, please email Rosemarie Thompson at
