About Us...
Education Service Center Region 17 provides support and coordination for the review, adoption, and distribution of state-adopted instructional materials, and administers the Technology and Instructional Materials Allotment (TIMA).
The Instructional Materials and Technology Allotment (IMTA) can be used to purchase instructional materials; technological equipment; certain related software, systems, and services; and salaries for specific technical support employees, as described in Texas Education Code (TEC), Chapter 31 Instructional Materials and Texas Administrative Code §66.1307.
Each district and open-enrollment charter school is entitled to an instructional materials allotment amount determined biennially by the commissioner and based on the legislative appropriation. These funds become available after September 1 of each odd-numbered year. The allotment is accessed through EMAT (must obtain EMAT access and complete the training and prerequisites first).
