Education Enhancement Funds (EEF Cards for Teachers)

  • Education Enhancement Funds (EEF cards) are state funds allocated directly to teachers to purchase authorized classroom supplies, materials and equipment to support the overall goals of the schools.  Allowable purchases are outlined in the Teacher Cardholder Agreement and the FAQ information.    Teachers are responsible for retaining adequate documentation of the items purchased and their use within the educational process.  MDE randomly audits individual teachers annually.

    The term "teacher" shall mean any employee of the school district who is required by law to obtain a teacher's license from the State Board of Education and is assigned to an instructional area of work but shall not include a federally funded teacher. The term "teacher" includes all licensed regular teachers and licensed state or locally funded special education teachers, vocational teachers, gifted teachers, counselors, and librarians.
