News and Updates:
School districts and charter schools are required to certify annually to the State Board of Education and the commissioner that, for each subject in the required curriculum other than physical education, students have access to instructional materials that cover all the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Districts and charter schools will be unable to order 2020-2021 instructional materials through EMAT or receive disbursement funds until the certification has been received by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).
The required Allotment and TEKS Certification is available in EMAT. Instructions and requirements regarding the certification form are available on the TEA website.
