Texas Education Agency Adoption Cycle (updated April 2020)
Proclamation 2021 - Adoption Information
The SBOE issued Proclamation 2021 at its June 2019 meeting to call for English and Spanish PreKindergarten Systems. The SBOE adoption of materials under Proclamation 2021 is scheduled to occur in November 2020. The adopted materials are scheduled to go into classrooms in the 2021–22 school year.
During the adoption process, SCUCISD operates as a closed district. All publishers with materials related to Proclamation 2021 should contact only the District Instructional Materials Coordinator, Kelley Mosley. Campus instructional staff should not be contacted by publishers.
To find which publishers have submitted materials to be reviewed by the state panel, please visit TEA's Proclamation 2021 site.
The Proclamation 2021 webpage also provides additional information specific to the materials under review. The State Board of Education requires that all pre-adoption samples of instructional materials be made available to the public online. When these samples become available, a hyperlink will be provided.
In the future months, samples of instructional materials that will be considered for adoption under Proclamation 2021 should become available for public viewing at: Education Service Center 20. For more information, visit ESC20 - Instructional Materials.

Science TEKS Info
Science TEKS Review Work Group Application
The State Board of Education will soon begin the review and revision of the K–12 science TEKS. The SBOE’s TEKS review and revision process calls for multiple, separate work groups to make recommendations to the board for revisions to the current standards. SBOE members nominate individuals, including educators, parents, business and industry representatives, and employers, to serve on TEKS review work groups.
The SBOE is now accepting applications for science TEKS review work groups. Applications received will be submitted to SBOE members for review throughout the process. Individuals selected will be asked to serve on one or more work groups. The TEKS review work groups will convene in Austin for a minimum of one face-to-face meeting. Additional meetings may be conducted via webinar.
