All reviewers are Texas educators. Each review team consists of five reviewers. At least two review team members are current classroom teachers. Other reviewers may be Texas district and campus administrators who demonstrate comprehensive understanding of the state standards, rigorous expectations for high-quality instructional materials, and deep knowledge of effective curriculum implementation. Texas reviewers represent all geographic areas of the state and a significant number have expertise serving students with special needs, English learners, and classrooms with high percentages of students receiving free and reduced-price lunch.
All reviewers complete a rigorous selection process and ongoing training to ensure that they have the knowledge and skills to write valid and reliable reviews that are helpful to Texas LEAs. For more information, visit the Review Team Selection page.
