A little feedback for the content providers out there reading this blog. We’ve been cleaning up from the programs we did this year and two content providers sent us boxes this year that had to be sent back. What a pain! Some of my schools didn’t have the funds to send it back so they sent it to me to send back (via our free county van). One of the providers called wondering if the box had been sent yet. The other charges $300 if they don’t get the box back, so I’m really hoping all the boxes got back to them!
So here’s my perspective. If you’re going to send a box, don’t ask for it back! I can think of several providers who send kits that really enhance the program and they don’t require it to be sent back. It’s really a pain and a headache to track it down and send it back. It must be a headache for the provider too.
So if you’re a new provider or thinking about sending a kit, don’t send one unless you don’t need it back! My two cents!
