In accordance with Texas Education Code, §28.0062, local education agencies (LEAs) are required to provide for the use of a phonics curriculum that uses systematic direct instruction in kindergarten through third grade to ensure all students obtain necessary early literacy skills, and 19 Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §74.2001 outlines specific criteria that phonics materials must do ((b)(1)), may do ((b)(2)), and may not do ((b)(3)).
TEA has reviewed many of the most commonly used phonics materials and will post reports to this page on an ongoing basis. Additional reviews will be conducted in the future. Districts may request reviews of a specific product by completing the District TRR Nomination Form.
