TEA Available Materials

TEA provides districts and educators with direct access to an optional set of high-quality instructional materials (HQIM) designed especially for Texas. 

Two types of materials are available to local education agencies (LEAs):

  • Core Open Education Resources (OER) materials: full sets of materials designed to cover 100% of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) in a grade level/band
  • Supplemental materials: materials not designed to cover 100% of the TEKS but that complement, enrich, or extend supports in a particular subject and grade band

The type of materials license impacts the length of time educators and districts can access a digital product. There are two types of licenses:

  • Open education resources (OER): state-developed digital materials that are freely available forever to Texas school districts and educators
  • State licensed: digital materials that are freely available to Texas school districts and educators for a specified time period

Prior to publication, materials go through a rigorous third-party review. Review criteria include TEKS alignment, support for all learners, progress monitoring, implementation supports, and more. Materials also are subject to a focus group of Texas educators. Given the timeline for development, errors are to be expected. If you find an error, or if you have additional questions abut the product, please email openeducationresources@tea.texas.gov

Visit each material page to request digital access and view the complete product information, including sample materials or visit the TEA Instructional Materials link, if applicable.
