They should make the parents pay for the supplies, or at least certain supplies that are needed.The School shouldn't have to DO EVERYTHING!

I agree with you Laryn, parents should pay for some needed supplies such as backpacks and items that are needed at home for homework.
We purchased no items for school except for new school clothes, shoes and backpacks.
We did purchase pencils, crayons, paper, for keeping at home. Why buy supplies to send to school then have to turn around and buy the same items for home use.
I like that we don't have to purchase school supplies for supplies that never make it home. The system is set up to provide supplies for schools. Every other county supplies the students with what they need while at school. If you ask me, Doddridge was behind in times and they are finally coming around. Good job Board of Education.
