Instructional Materials Allotment

Instructional Materials Allotment

Senate Bill 6 from the 82nd Texas Legislature created an instructional materials allotment (IMA) for the purchase of instructional materials, technological equipment, and technology-related services.

Each district and open-enrollment charter school is entitled to an IMA. The amount of the IMA is determined biennially by the commissioner and is based on the legislative appropriation. Districts and open-enrollment charter schools have access to their allotment through the educational materials ordering system known as EMAT.

All samples of instructional materials can be viewed online through the TEA website. Region 6 ESC also has digital samples of instructional materials available to the public for preview Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. excluding holidays. 

Proclamation 2020: The State Board of Education (SBOE) issued Proclamation 2020 for high school English language arts and reading. The adopted materials are scheduled to go into classrooms in the 2020–21 school year.

Proclamation 2021: The State Board of Education (SBOE) issued Proclamation 2021 to call for English and Spanish prekindergarten systems. The adopted materials are scheduled to go into classrooms in the 2021–22 school year.
