We are moving from a block schedule to an 8 period day because of the elimination of the January Regents exams.
And this has produced a serious calculator shortage, among other issues.
I'm requesting the purchase of more, but the administration would like to know how other schools handle the distribution of calculators. Currently, we have class sets for Integrated Algebra and Geometry students, but issue calculators (like textbooks) for Algebra II/Trig, PreCalculus and Calculus.
Would you take a minute and describe how you distribute calculators  or do you require students to purchase their own?
Thanks so much.
