Target to offer teachers 15% discount on classroom supplies next week

Target is offering up a special deal to teachers before school starts

A recent Staten Island Advance/SILive report explored how teachers often have to stretch their supply budgets, even spending their own money to ensure that their classrooms are fully equipped.

Target has a new way to help educators stretch those dollars.

In a blog post, the retailer announced a 15 percent discount for classroom supplies from Sunday to July 21. If you go to this link before July 15, you will not see the coupon code so make sure you check back between 7/15 and 7/21 to get the discount offer.

A study released this spring found that 94 percent of US public school teachers spent their own money to buy school supplies during the 2014-2015 school year, according to a study by the government's National Center for Education Statistics.

The average amount teachers said they spent without reimbursement was $479, far more than the federal $250 tax deduction available to teachers.
