GREEN BAY, Wis. (NBC 26) -- Some classes may be online, while others may be in-person or partially in person, regardless of where they're taking place, teachers are still spending money on supplies.

According to a survey by Adopt A Classroom, many teachers have spend about a third of their school supply expenses on distance learning materials. Nearly every three out of four teachers have spent money on printers, ink and paper. It's to make packets for students who may not have access to computers and internet.

Nearly half of teachers have spent money on postage and mailing supplies so they can send learning materials to students. Even in schools where classes are being held in person, Adopt A Classroom still expects teachers to spend more money on supplies.

Through Adopt A Classroom, people can donate to teachers. Teachers can the use that money to spend in an online marketplace.
