Which is correct when stating that someone is suppose (ed) to get back to you.
"Supposed" is correct, "suppose" is a conjugation of the verb "to suppose"

To continue j7's explanation, here are some examples:

Jade was supposed to get back to me. --> Jade was meant to contact me.

I suppose I will have to speak to the headmaster. --> I think I'll have to speak to the headmaster.

(be) supposed to is the idiom, and it sounds like suh-POST-too.

In all other uses of the verb suppose, the final s sounds like a z.

My talk show is (suppose) to air today, or My talk show is (supposed) to air today.
My talk show is (supposed) to air today. Or you could read the post immediately above yours.

Does anyone have a sentence that "suppose" is supposed to be in?

I suppose you ask because you don't suppose that you have a sentence like that of your own. Do you suppose that you could write one now? Let's suppose that you could. What do you suppose it would be?
