Instructional Materials Ordering Information

School districts and open-enrollment charter schools order instructional materials for each school year using EMAT, our online ordering system. The following links may assist instructional materials coordinators:

EMAT Training

EMAT training videos are provided to assist districts and charter schools in the instructional materials ordering process. EMAT training is required for all new instructional materials coordinators, and annual review of the training is recommended for all coordinators. Training videos are updated on an annual basis, and new trainings are made available as needed.

EMAT Access 

EMAT allows for two kinds of users: ordering and view-only.  

Each district may assign up to two staff members as ordering users to manage the ordering of instructional materials through EMAT. Users with this access submit requisitions and disbursement requests through EMAT.

Each district may also assign up to two staff members as view-only users. View-only users can view orders and reports in EMAT. The superintendent may consider assigning this role to such staff members as the curriculum director or the business manager.

Apply for access online at TEASE Applications Reference. Superintendents will be contacted automatically, via email, for TEASE and EMAT requests that are pending approval. Coordinators must complete the trainings available at EMAT Training (above) and submit the training certification to instructional.materials@tea.texas.gov before access can be granted.
