On behalf of the Texas Education Agency (TEA), Education Service Center Region 13 is seeking proposals to support the TEA’s strategic priority to build a strong foundation for reading and math with the goal of improving student achievement by procuring TEKS-aligned instructional materials as part of the Open Education Resources initiative.
With this solicitation, ESC Region 13 and the TEA seek to develop full sets of open education resource curricular materials that are fully aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) for Grades K-8 Math, Algebra 1, Algebra II, and Geometry, including an accelerated Math 6-Algebra I pathway and Math K-6 in Spanish. ESC Region 13 and the TEA will prioritize proposals for Grades 6-8 Math, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. Full sets are defined as high-quality, comprehensive packages of curricular resources that cover 100% of TEKS in a specific subject area and grade and support a minimum of 180 days of instruction in brick-and-mortar, remote, and hybrid instructional settings. Full sets include everything an educator would need to execute effective, quality instruction including but not limed to the following materials: content and overall vision, scope and sequence for the full academic year, teacher materials, student materials, formative and summative assessments, remote learning guidance, and supporting digital and/or interactive tools (see Section 1.10.08 Guidelines and Criteria for further details). ESC Region 13 will procure these full sets from exceptional Texas educators, nonprofits, and organizations, oversee review and editing of these materials in partnership with the Vendor, and publish for public use.
In tandem with the development, review, and publication of the math full sets, ESC Region 13 and TEA seek, with this solicitation, to further customize the TEKS-aligned Student and Teacher editions of the TEA’s existing Math K-5 instructional materials offered through Texas Home Learning, which meet the licensing requirements of open education resources defined by the Texas Education Code § 31.002. Information about the TEA’s K-5 Math instructional materials may be found at TexasHomeLearning.org.
The timeline for this project is February 2021 – August 31, 2022.
