Who Can Shop 

The Teaching Tools Store currently serves 140 Title I schools in Hillsborough County Public School district. Our goal is to serve all 150 Title I schools so every student that needs school supplies can be served.

There are 3 ways a teacher at an eligible Title I school can benefit from our free school supplies.
