The request must include an explanation of the reason for the update and be accompanied by an electronic sample and an updated Correlation to TEKS and ELPS. Submit an Instructional Materials & Implementation help desk ticket if you would like to submit a substitution request

Updates 

Publishers must submit a written request in order to update content in adopted materials. All updates that involve content used to determine TEKS coverage must be approved by the SBOE prior to their introduction into the material. All updates that do not involve content used to determine TEKS coverage must be approved by TEA. Without prior TEA approval, publishers may, at any time, make changes that do not affect the content or change the technical requirements, such as technical enhancements or improvements. Submit an Instructional Materials & Implementation help desk ticket if you would like to submit an update request.

Proposed updates are posted to the website for public review for a minimum of seven days prior to approval.
