TCSA Webinar: Instructional Materials Allotment (IMA), August 28th, 2012! (TEA IMA Additional Enrollment Growth Request Information Included) 

The Legislature passed SB 6 to create the Instructional Materials Allotment (IMA). This allotment is designed to provide funds for charter schools to purchase the instructional materials that will be used to support the teaching and learning of the curriculum established by the State Board of Education (SBOE) as outlined in the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS).

As the delivery of information has changed over the last 10 years outside of school, from print to digital, the IMA is designed to give districts the flexibility that is needed to allow them to deliver content digitally as they deem prudent. SB 6 combined the funds that had been set aside for technology in the Technology Allotment, with the funds that had been set aside for textbooks. It is a significant change that charter schools need to become very familiar with when implementing.

This requires charter schools to think strategically when deciding what content they should use instructionally and how technology can support the teaching of the content. In order to make the best use of the allotment, schools will want to include a variety of stakeholders when deciding how to utilize the IMA.
