Liner Legal, LLC is offering a new community program called Liner Legal In the Classroom aimed at providing support for parents and teachers of children with special needs.

During the 2018-19 school year, Liner Legal will provide supplies for specific classroom projects (up to $50 per request) to Ohio teachers in special needs classrooms to offset the out-of-pocket expenses incurred by teachers.

Teachers can submit a request for supplies online at www.linerlegal.com/classroom. Included with the request should be a description of the project and an itemized list of supplies needed. In June 2019, Liner Legal will compile the projects into a digital book for distribution to special needs classrooms in Ohio.

In addition to teacher reimbursements, Liner Legal is providing an opportunity for families in the new school year. Ten students will be chosen to receive a full reimbursement of their required school supplies (up to $250 per student) by having a parent or guardian submit a form online at www.linerlegal.com/back-to-school.

The inspiration behind Liner Legal In the Classroom comes from founder Michael Liner’s wife. While working as a mental health counselor in inner-city Cleveland with underprivileged children, she spent thousands of dollars out-of-pocket each year on expenses to benefit the children she counseled. Michael realized this problem and wanted to do something to encourage teachers and other underpaid professionals to continue to make a positive impact.
