When you initially sign in to your ClassWallet account you will have to accept the online affidavit before continuing with the registration process. By checking the “Click to Accept” checkbox on the online affidavit, I (1) agree to receive an allotment for classroom instructional supplies and materials; understand that these funds may be spent only on instruction, classroom, or technology-related materials or supplies that directly benefit students, and (3) understand the consequences if I fail to use the funds for anything other than instructional, classroom, or technology-related materials or supplies that directly benefit students.
