It is against California state law for a school to penalize a student who cannot afford school supplies. While many schools still ask students to contribute needed supplies, the school cannot require them.

“The district is prohibited by the new law from penalizing students who can’t – or won’t – bring supplies. In some cases, students are telling teachers they don’t have to bring supplies from home. According to the new law, they are technically correct in saying so. However, lack of available supplies can strap a financially struggling school district even further.” –Grace Chen
