BACK TO SCHOOL: Supply List for Area Schools

back to school shopping

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – With back-to-school time here, parents and students are getting their supplies ready for a new school year.

Lincoln Public Schools doesn’t have a required supply list, as the website states, “In accordance with the Nebraska Constitution and state and federal law, Lincoln Public Schools provides a free, public education to all students. This generally means the district provides the supplies needed for instruction at no cost to students. This includes textbooks, pencils, erasers, crayons, glue, scissors, paper, notebooks, etc. For this reason, please do not send school supplies for your child’s individual use at school.

You CAN make a donation to your child’s classroom if you’d like and LPS has provided a list of donation options.

According to new data from the National Retail Foundation, parents are expected to spend an average of $848.90 on school items. That’s up nearly $60 from last year. Total back-to-school spending is expected to reach a record $37.1 billion, up from $33.9 billion last year and an all-time high in the survey’s history.

Here are some other districts and the most updated lists we found. If you have an updated list, please email and we’ll add to this list.
