(WVLT) -- Metro Nashville Public Schools says teachers can no longer post on crowd funding websites like GoFundMe to ask for money to buy school supplies for their classrooms. Nashville school officials say it's too hard to know what supplies are being bought with the charitable funds or if teachers are pocketing the donated cash.

Metro Nashville Schools gives its teachers $200 yearly for school supplies. Officials say they may amend the new policy in the future if teachers can list exactly what they are needing crowd funding for.
