Office Depot Serves As A Trusted Resource For Teachers By Providing Year-Round Classroom Support

Stocks in this article: ODP

Office Depot (NYSE: ODP), a leading global provider of school supplies and services, continues its commitment to education by offering teachers convenient classroom resources, special deals and shopping rewards to support them all year long.

As teachers prepare for the next school year, Office Depot is equipping them with the latest technology and tools to plan and prepare for next year’s class, including the launch of its new School Supplies Checklist. By visiting www.officedepot.com/schoollist, teachers can build, store and share checklists of required school supplies through the simple-to-use online platform. With this digital planning tool, teachers can opt to use a starter list with recommended supplies by grade level or customize their own checklist to share with parents, allowing them to conveniently browse and purchase their children’s school essentials directly from the website or by printing the list for fast, in-store shopping.

To assist teachers, parents and schools earn free supplies and alleviate out-of-pocket expenses, every School Supplies Checklist links to its corresponding school code so that shoppers who use a teacher’s list can help their schools get 5% back for free supplies though Office Depot’s 5% Back to Schools Program. It’s simple – shop at Office Depot using the School Supplies Checklist and the corresponding school will receive a percent back based on each shopper’s total.

“Office Depot recognizes that teachers are the backbone of our educational system, and we want to ensure that they have the resources they need,” said Bob Moore, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Merchandising Officer for Office Depot. “The Office Depot School Supplies Checklist online platform makes it effortless for parents and students to find what they need for the upcoming school year, while also giving back to the schools in their communities.”

Additionally, Office Depot recognizes teachers for their dedication and commitment to students’ success with special programs like Star Teacher and Teacher Appreciation Events that allow them to get the most out of back to school shopping. Teachers can also sign up for the new Office Depot Rewards™ program that provides educators with the ability to choose how they get rewarded. Members receive personalized promotions on products or services that are relevant to them, access to special in-store events and exclusive pre-sale offers on new products. Members will also receive monthly rewards certificates, issued for every 1,000 points earned. Teachers can find out more and sign up by visiting www.officedepotrewards.com.

In honor of their service and beginning in late-July, every Office Depot store will host its annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast. The celebration offers teachers complimentary breakfast and extra savings on school supplies to kick off eight days of teacher shopping advantages. Make sure to visit www.officedepotrewards.com/tab to find an event near you.

Teachers can also rely on Office Depot to help them navigate the rapidly changing educational landscape, such as the national adoption of Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and digitally-enabled classrooms. To support teachers through the transition, Office Depot has partnered with industry-leading suppliers and service providers to offer educators more than 1,600 common core products that provide helpful strategies and instructional materials.

To take advantage of the many educational services and resources available to teachers, or to learn more about product offerings, please visit www.officedepot.com.
