Optional School Supply Lists

Arizona law requires that public schools provide the supplies required for academic success.  All materials required for a student's education will be provided by the Dysart Unified School District. This supply list represents general, optional items which you may supply at your discretion.  Please check with your K-8 school and child's teacher for an optional supply list before purchasing any supplies. If you have questions regarding the optional supply list, please contact your K-8 school. 

Our teachers have provided Optional Supply Lists for the 2021-2022 academic year.  Each grade level or area has a separate document below.  Please note that some grade levels created one unified supply list for all teachers, while other grade levels have unique supply lists for each teacher.  When you open the document, you may need to navigate to the second or third page to find your child's teacher's list.
