    Texas Education Agency Adoption Cycle (updated April 2021) 


    Proclamation 2022 - Adoption Information

    The SBOE issued Proclamation 2022 at the April 2020 meeting to call for K-12 Health and Physical Education instructional materials. The SBOE adoption of materials under Proclamation 2022 is scheduled to occur in November 2021. The adopted materials are then scheduled for implementation in the 2022–2023 school year. 

    During the adoption process, SCUCISD operates as a closed district.  All publishers with materials related to Proclamation 2022 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 for these courses to be reviewed by the state panel this summer, please visit TEA's Proclamation 2022 site.  The Proclamation 2022 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. These online samples can be accessed through this Proclamation 2022 Samples link.

    Social Studies TEKS Review Survey

    As part of the State Board of Education’s process to review and revise the social studies Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS), the Texas Education Agency (TEA) is surveying educators to help inform the recommendations of the social studies TEKS review work groups. We encourage you to provide your feedback regarding the current social studies TEKS by completing the survey.

    Please note that survey will only be open for four weeks, so you are encouraged to complete the survey as soon as possible. The Social Studies TEKS Review Survey will close on December 10, 2021.

    Social Studies TEKS Review Work Group Application

    The State Board of Education’s TEKS review and revision process calls for multiple, separate work groups to make recommendations to the SBOE 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 to serve on social studies 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. TEKS review work groups typically convene for two-day meetings and may include Saturdays. Additional days or meetings may be scheduled if needed. TEA is currently conducting TEKS review meetings virtually but is expected to return to face-to-face meetings soon. The invitation to serve on a work group will include the format/location of the meeting.

    To access the application and for more information regarding the K-12 social studies TEKS review, please visit the Social Studies TEKS Review webpage at https://tea.texas.gov/academics/curriculum-standards/teks-review/2021-2022-social-studies-teks-review. 

    Questions regarding the application or TEKS review process may be sent via email to teks@tea.texas.gov.
