Adoption of New Pre-K Instructional Materials

  • Texas recently reviewed and adopted new instructional materials for use in Texas prekindergarten classes starting in school year 2021-2022. Houston ISD is in the process of evaluating which of the state-adopted materials best supports our students. As part of that evaluation, HISD invites school and community members to review the state-adopted materials and provide feedback. Materials selected and approved next spring by the HISD Board of Trustees are then eligible for district purchase and distribution to Pre-K classrooms.



  • Feedback on the various materials can be provided via this link bit.ly/P21-survey or by scanning this QR code: QR code to survey


  • Below are the ten publishers that are submitting materials for HISD's consideration. Instructions on accessing online samples of their materials are listed in the table below.

    Please understand that samples are to be accessed for review purposes only and may not be reproduced without the consent of the publisher.

    The Texas Education Agency maintains a full set of resources regarding the Pre-K adoption on its Proclamation 2021 web pages.
