Instructional Materials Adoption Cycle
In accordance with Texas Education Code, §31.004, local education agencies (LEAs) are required to certify annually to the State Board of Education (SBOE) and the Commissioner that students have access to instructional materials covering all Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for all required subjects, except physical education.
Additionally, in accordance with 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §66.105, LEAs are required to certify that they protect against access to obscene or harmful content in compliance with the requirements for certification under the Children's Internet Protection Act, 47 USC §254(h)(5)(B) and (C). The TEKS Certification 2023–24 Survey includes a section to allow LEAs to certify they meet this requirement.
This year’s TEKS Certification Process requires:
TEA recommends that LEAs complete these steps by May 1, 2023. The state online instructional materials ordering system, EMAT, will close for annual maintenance on March 31, 2023, and is scheduled to reopen on May 15, 2023. Completion of the TEKS Certification Process is required to regain access to allotment funds when EMAT reopens in May of 2023.
TEKS Certification 2023–24 Survey submissions received after May 15, 2023, will typically be processed within five business days, and access to EMAT will follow.
Districts affected by a natural disaster can create a needs list in EMAT to inform potential donors of specific needs. Visit the Instructional Materials Emergency Assistance page for videos and detailed instructions. Districts and other entities that wish to donate materials can do so within EMAT or by emailing the TEA Instructional Materials and Implementation Division.
