Click here to search for a community partner of services (classes, tutoring, etc).
The CP’s list!
It’s time to start planning for the new school year. Work with your teacher to see what curricula, supplies, and lessons that you will need. Your teacher may be able to order some things for you,
Educational Material Resources (EMR)
The following are companies that provide educational materials,
and who are in our internal system as community partners, which means that your teacher can place these orders for you directly (no need for reimbursement!). This list is not even close to exhaustive, but these are some of the most-used and recommended suppliers.
In just a few cases, it will save you a little money to pay yourself and get reimbursed (Sometimes free shipping, or reduced rates for families). But the Purchase Order process is the easiest for accounting purposes — for you and for the school — with no up-front cost to you.
Purchase Orders placed by your teacher will be sent directly to the teacher, who will deliver the products to you.
Note that a few of these companies will offer Christian or other sectarian books, so please be mindful that you don’t order something for which we cannot pay.
Textbook Publishers are not included on this list, but companies like Scott Foresman are part of our community partners, so that we can order textbooks for you directly — all as a part of the student’s budget.
Your teacher can generate Purchase orders for an upcoming school year, starting on August 1. Your teacher can pre-order some curriculum in July, for those items you need to have on hand starting the first day of school. Parent purchase of materials for returning students (for reimbursement) can begin as early as July 1. If you are new to VVCP, your purchasing can begin on August 1.
