High Enrollment Growth (HEG) Adjustments for 2022–2023 

In accordance with Texas Education Code, §31.0214, certain school districts and open-enrollment charter schools are eligible for adjustments to their Instructional Materials and Technology Allotments (IMTAs) to accommodate substantial growth in enrollment between the 2021–2022 and 2022–2023 school years. HEG adjustments for 2023 were calculated using a comparison of the fall 2021 data to the fall 2022 PEIMS enrollment data.  

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has identified the districts and charter schools with the highest enrollment growth from fall 2021 to fall 2022 and will make adjustments for 645 districts. The adjustments provided $63.40 per eligible student. The commissioner’s determination under this process is final and cannot be appealed, per 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC), §66.1309(c)

The list of qualifying districts and the amount of the adjustment for each is available on the IMTA page of the TEA website. The additional funding will be loaded into EMAT, the instructional materials ordering system, by May 31, 2023.  

The 2022–2023 IMTA was lower than it has been in previous years. The 87th Texas Legislature reduced the allotment to match the projected costs of Proclamation 2021 and Proclamation 2022 instructional materials for prekindergarten systems, health, and physical education. Due to the historically lower allotment, the commissioner has opted to waive 19 TAC §66.1309(e), which would have limited this year’s HEG adjustment of the IMTA to half of the per-student amount established as the biennial IMTA. With this waiver, the per-student HEG adjustment will equal the per-student biennial IMTA at $63.40.
