Note: Adopted rule language is still undergoing a technical review. The breakouts will be updated to reflect any technical edits that are deemed necessary. 

Review and Adoption Process

The review and adoption process determines the instructional materials eligible for adoption by the State Board of Education (SBOE).  The process starts when the SBOE calls for new instructional materials and is complete with the selection and implementation of new materials by school districts.

Proclamations

The SBOE uses a proclamation to call for new instructional materials.  Proclamations are named by the year in which the new materials are intended to be made available in the classroom.  The adoption cycle for foundation and enrichment subjects shows when the SBOE is tentatively scheduled to call for instructional materials.

Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS)

The TEKS are the content standards that must be covered in adopted instructional materials.  Publishers create correlations to provide evidence of the alignment of products submitted for adoption to the required TEKS. The state review panels are provided with the publisher correlations in an evaluation instrument to record their findings of TEKS coverage and factual and editorial errors.

Ordering Information

School districts and charter schools use the ordering information page to view instructional materials allotment (IMA) allocations, state-adopted materials list, and publisher/depository contact information.

Accessible Instructional Materials

Accessible instructional materials are ordered for students with disabilities.  There are specific guidelines that publishers of print materials must follow for the creation of those materials.  Electronic instructional materials must also be fully accessible for students with disabilities. Beginning with Proclamation 2017, publishers must provide an accessibility report prior to adoption by the SBOE verifying that all electronic instructional materials comply with Web Content Accessibility (WCAG) 2.0 AA standards and technical standards required by the Federal Rehabilitation Act, Section 508. Additional resources regarding accessibility can be found in the appendix of Proclamation 2017.

EMAT Login

Publishers who have EMAT user names and passwords can use EMAT to submit bid information, including Statements of Intent to Bid, Complete Descriptions, and Official Bids by the specified deadlines listed in the proclamation. Publishers who do not have EMAT user names and passwords can click here to submit bid information.

Publishers can also view and process orders for adopted materials in EMAT.  District and charter EMAT/EVI contacts, district order lists, and payment reports are available in the EMAT system.

Reports

    Order Summary Report

    The order summary report is updated nightly and lists the adopted instructional materials that have been requisitioned in EMAT for the current school year, including the publisher, title, and quantity ordered.

    EMAT Vendor Payment Report

    The EMAT vendor payment report allows vendors and publishers to view all of the payments received from TEA. The report includes the amount paid, the payment date, and the warrant number.

    Vendor Adjustment History Report

    The vendor adjustment history report shows any adjustments that have been made to a vendor’s or publisher’s account.  This report can include credits processed for returned items from school districts and charter schools.

      TEA Updates/Mailing Lists

      Join the Review and Adoption mailing list to receive important information regarding the review and adoption process, including upcoming deadlines.

      Join the Instructional Materials mailing list to receive important announcements regarding instructional materials that are sent to school districts and charter schools.  Announcements include Letters to the Administrator Addressed, EMAT open and close dates, and instructional materials allotment information.
