Policies and Procedures

  1. To remain eligible for future shopping experiences at the Teacher Resource Center, teachers must show up for their scheduled shopping experience. Failure to take advantage of a scheduled shopping experience will eliminate the opportunity for future shopping experiences. The scheduled time could have been used by another teacher. 

  2. It is permissible to bring a  shopping companion for assistance only if the primary shopper is sight impaired or requires medical assistance. If you require these accommodations, please email before your shopping appointment.

    No children, spouses, or unregistered teachers are permitted to accompany shoppers. Children may not be left unattended in the general ScrapsKC store.

  3. Items provided by the Teacher Resource Center are for use in your classroom and for your students only.

    The reselling of any merchandise is not permitted. Any participants found to be reselling or employing items for personal use by themselves, their families, or other organizations without explicit permission from ScrapsKC will have their privileges revoked.

  4. The Teacher Resource Center is not responsible for determining the appropriateness of materials for students or classrooms. It is the responsibility of the shopper to determine the appropriateness of materials for their students and classroom.

  5. All items in the store are available on a “first come, first served” and “as is” basis. The Teacher Resource Center makes every effort to assure items in the store are in working order.

  6. All teachers must present a district photo ID teacher badge each time they check in to shop. Without your ID you will not be allowed to shop.

  7. Item limits will be placed on certain items to ensure sufficient inventory for all teachers. If you need more than the limit, the TRC staff will do their best to direct teachers to comparable materials in the ScrapsKC creative reuse that can be purchased out of pocket for a 20% discount. These discounts only apply to materials that teachers will be using in their classrooms.

  8. Large items, such as furniture pieces, are not the responsibility of ScrapsKC staff to move or transport. If a teacher selects a large item during their trip and cannot safely transport it, the item will be held for seven (7) calendar days allowing the teacher time to make necessary transportation arrangements. A companion may be brought to assist in moving large items from the TRC.
