Title
Authorizing City Officials to File Articles of Incorporation to establish a Non-Profit Corporation that shall be called The Philadelphia School Teacher's Reimbursement Fund, Inc., for the purpose of reimbursing personal money spent by teachers of the Philadelphia School District for the purchase of supplies, materials, and equipment needed for their classrooms.

Body
WHEREAS, Due to the Philadelphia School District's continuing structural deficits, many schools in Philadelphia lack basic school supplies and materials for their students; and

WHEREAS, The City of Philadelphia recognizes that some Philadelphia teachers are spending significant amounts of personal income to provide teaching materials such as books, art supplies, and electronics that are lacking in their classrooms; and

WHEREAS, Until the Philadelphia School District achieves long-term fiscal health along with effective management of its operations, a funding source dedicated solely for reimbursing teachers to purchase school supplies and teaching materials is necessary in the City of Philadelphia; now, therefore
