    need urgent help! please

    dear teachers,
    I am translating a document for my school.
    in the document, there is one table.
    one table is "Resource, Budget", the content is "4,000 pounds supply cover @ 1,800 pounds".

    what's the meaning?

    thanks a lot.

    Hello JJ

    If the document relates to a school budget, it might relate to "supply teachers", i.e. temporary teaching staff who cover for the absences of full-time staff.

    If it doesn't relate to a school budget, let us know what it does relate to, and perhaps someone will have a better idea!

    MrP

    thank you very much, you're right, it is a school plan. it is "4,000 pounds + supply cover @ 1,800 pounds", I think it means totally 5800 pounds, of which 1800 pounds will be used to pay for supply teachers.
