Objective: create a label to identify basic supplies. Basics resource = essential material you'd expect to have in the backpack. Ex: notebook, pencils, pens, intro reading guide.
- what % of projects request basic supplies?
- are books included as basic supplies (skews data by a lot)?
Impact: inform districts about schools and specific basic supplies they are missing so districts can be more responsive to essential student needs. This will also help DonorsChoose.org to send email campaigns to donors asking to fund basic materials necessary for new school terms. Additionally, this list can help teachers with their project ideas.
