I think the closest I ever saw to communal classroom supplies was back in elementary school. And then, it was provided by the school......don't remember that my mom was ever given a list of things to buy.

Same here with a few exceptions. I remember one time opening the closet door in one of my kids' classrooms and seeing boxes and boxes of Kleenex, more than ever could be used in a school year. I suppose it's hard to assign half the kids to bring Kleenex but maybe they could say: A-L, Kleenex; M-Z Clorox wipes (or something like that). I know the wipes are more expensive, maybe add something in addition to the A-L folks.

Yes, the tissues and Clorox wipes I do recall -- I'm fairly certain even my high schoolers were asked to contribute tissues during cold & flu season -- but communal folders & binders? No, I don't remember anything like that.
