  • SBEC and Proclamation 2021

    The State Board of Education (SBOE) uses a proclamation to call for new instructional materials. The proclamation lists the subject areas scheduled for review. It contains a schedule of adoption procedures, requirements, the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), and instructions for providing electronic files for braille and large-type materials. Proclamations are named for the year the materials go into the classroom. 

    Proclamation 2021 calls for instructional materials for all courses in Pre-Kindergarten Systems, English  & Spanish in grades PK-3 & 4.  Irving ISD will conduct an materials adoption sometime in the Fall/Spring 2020-21 school year, materials will be ordered in Spring of 2021 after Board approval, and implementation will begin in the 2021-2022 school year. 

     

    The State Board of Education requires that all Proclamation 2021 pre-adoption samples of instructional materials submitted for adoption be made available to the public online. The pre-adoption samples are posted to the Texas Education Agency website.
