Proclamation 2014 - Overview Print Page

IMA Allocations

The educational materials ordering system known as EMAT is now open for ordering for the 2017-2018 school year.

Districts and charters are required to certify annually to the State Board of Education (SBOE) 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 charters will be unable to order 2017−2018 instructional materials through EMAT until the certification has been received by the Texas Education Agency (TEA).

The required Instructional Materials Allotment and TEKS Certification is available in EMAT. Instructions to access and process the form are available on the EMAT announcement page. The certification form must be presented to the district’s or charter’s local board of trustees or governing body. The superintendent, board president, and board secretary are required to sign the form before it is submitted to TEA. The signed certification form can be scanned and emailed to the TEA instructional materials mailbox at

IMA Allocations:

Although the amount of each LEA’s IMA will be reflected in EMAT as early as possible this summer, the funds will not actually be available until after September 1, 2017. A delayed-payment option, authorized by the Texas Education Code, §31.0215, allows districts to requisition and receive stateadopted instructional materials before the IMA funds for those materials are available if the publisher has agreed to participate in the option. Information regarding which publishers will participate in the delayed-payment option will be available in EMAT when it opens for the new year. The delayed-payment option can be used for up to 80 percent of a district’s IMA. Once the 2018−2019 biennium funds become available, TEA will prioritize delayed-payment requisitions over any disbursement requests made directly by a district or charter school.

The 2016‒2017 instructional materials allotment (IMA) allocations for each district and open-enrollment charter school are now available at


House Bill 1474, passed by the 84th Texas Legislature and signed into law on June 17, 2015, changed the IMA from an annual allocation to a biennial allocation and requires the Texas Education Agency to make the full amount available to districts on September 1 of the first year of the biennium.

Districts need to know that the amounts in the EMAT system must serve them for two full school years rather than just one. District personnel responsible for making instructional materials and educational technology purchasing decisions will want to carefully plan out the two years’ spending to ensure that appropriate funding is available for the full two school years.
