ESC Portal

The TEA ESC portal is designed to provide important information to education service centers (ESCs) regarding their role in the review, adoption, and distribution of state-adopted instructional materials.

Requirements of ESCs

  • Designate the person who will supervise the sample materials and publish a news release notifying area districts about the availability of materials
  • Provide in-person public access to adopted instructional materials upon request
  • Provide public access to materials under consideration for adoption by the State Board of Education
  • Notify TEA of any irregularities of missing information in pre- and post-adoption samples and correlation documents

Samples

Adopted materials must be viewed in person at TEA or one of the 20 ESCs. Materials under consideration may be viewed online on the TEA website, on one of the 20 ESCs' websites, or in person at TEA or one of the 20 ESCs. All samples for materials adopted prior to Proclamation 2014 are available in their final format—print or digital. All samples for materials adopted in Proclamation 2014 or later are only available as digital samples. Samples remain available for the duration of their adoption.

The document below outlines the status of samples for each subject area.
