McGraw-Hill Education is pleased to announce that we have agreed to extend our contract as requested by TEA for reading materials from the previous K-12 Texas adoptions. The original contract was due to expire with the 2015-2016 school year, but McGraw-Hill will commit to a contract extension through the 2017-2018 school year.
What this means for your teachers and students is that ALL K-12 Texas Treasures and K-5 Texas Tesoros state bid materials will be available through 2017-2018. We will honor the original pricing with the state, and will continue to provide all qualifying complimentary K-12 teacher materials, workbooks, and online access AT NO CHARGE to adopting districts. This includes the Kindergarten activity books for both Treasures and Tesoros.

Resources will be on display for review as well as in focused presentations led by publisher representatives. Multiple opportunities for questions and follow up information will be available. This will be a great opportunity to get all of your questions answered firsthand. A schedule of presentations by topic and language will be shared to all registrants before the event.
Region 10 ESC does not endorse or support any specific program or materials. This event is solely an opportunity for district representatives to make contact with publishers and get exposed to what is available for adoption in this proclamation cycle.

Subject: AIM Freight Carriers
At this time, the Texas Education Agency has freight contracts for shipping of all instructional materials (IM) with only two carriers: Central Freight Lines, Inc. and Lone Star Overnight. Central Freight is the contracted freight carrier for shipments to the Special Textbook Redistribution Center (STRC) with a weight of ≥ 151 pounds. Lone Star is the contracted freight carrier for shipments to the STRC with a weight ˂ 151 pounds.
Some districts continue to ship accessible IM using carriers that no longer have active contracts. To avoid having to pay freight charges with local funds, you must use only the correct state-contracted carrier. Beginning Monday, February 13, any district choosing to use non-contracted carriers will be responsible for all resulting freight charges. Please contact the IM Division at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
Central Freight 1-800-782-5036
Lone Star Overnight 1-800-800-8984
