Program Requisitions
The new adoptions requisition and continuing adoptions requisition have been combined to create a program requisition. All state-adopted programs are available for order through the program requisition, which has the same format as the component requisition. An instructional training video is available on the TEA website at https://tea.texas.gov/Academics/Instructional_Materials/Ordering_and_Distribution/EMAT_Training/.

Component Requisitions
Component requisitions allow districts to purchase individual components from state-adopted programs. Components from Proclamation 2017 through Proclamation 2019 are available for order in this way. An instructional training video is available here. 

For assistance with requisitions, please submit a help desk ticket

The Allotment and TEKS Certification for the 2020-21 school year is now available in EMAT.

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 of the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills. Districts and charter schools will be unable to order 2020-21 instructional materials through EMAT or receive disbursement funds until the certification has been received by the Texas Education Agency.

Instructions and requirements regarding the new certification form are available at https://youtu.be/HxH4oFVn6Dk
