State Board of Education to Delay Instructional Materials Adoption

In a press release on July 18th the Texas Education Agency announced the delay of the scheduled adoption of Proclamation 2016 instructional materials. The delay is based on financial concerns related to major changes made through Senate Bill 6 passed by the Texas Legislature in 2011.

“To address districts’ concern about funding, the board voted to delay the call for new instructional materials for Languages Other Than English and Special Topics in Social Studies including Ethnic Studies by one year. These materials were originally scheduled to be implemented in 2016. The SBOE now plans to call for these instructional materials in conjunction with Career and Technical Education (CTE) materials in Proclamation 2017.”
