Each school has its own online store for school supplies.
Students in a school will be given the opportunity to pre-order the school supplies online and receive them within one week.
Ms Ellis said the state would not have to provide the school vendors with the digital art kits, but would provide them with supplies that were already available to all students.”
If they’ve already got some supplies that they would like to purchase then they can go ahead and get them,” she said.
