Strong Foundations Implementation Supports | Texas Education Agency – Texas Education Agency



To continue to accelerate student learning in Texas, TEA is launching the Strong Foundations Implementation Supports grant for local education agencies (LEAs) implementing High-Quality Instructional Materials (HQIM). For the 2023–24 school year, LEAs can choose to apply to the following options as a part of the Learning Acceleration Support Opportunities (LASO) Grant: 
All options include pre-implementation planning supports, ongoing progress monitoring supports, and additional communities of practice for senior district leaders. For a more in-depth comparison of the options, please visit our Strong Foundations FAQs.


HQIM are among the most impactful elements of a student’s education. HQIM allow students to engage more deeply and meaningfully with the Texas educational standards and supports teachers in ensuring all students have access to high-quality and rigorous grade-level content. 
Strong Foundations Implementation Supports are specifically for LEAs implementing approved core HQIM in K–5 RLA (Amplify Texas Elementary Literacy Program, Amplify Texas Lectoescritura En Español) and K–5 math (Eureka Math TEKS Edition). 
Amplify Texas Elementary Literacy Program is built on the Science of Reading and is fully aligned to the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS). Amplify Texas ELP K-5 knowledge domains provide a coherent knowledge sequence across science, social studies, and literature that builds within each grade and across grade levels. Amplify Texas ELP K-2 English phonics units provide explicit, systematic practice with literacy foundational skills.  Amplify Texas Lectoescritura en Español is designed to support biliteracy in English and Spanish and includes both the K-5 knowledge domains (Conocimiento) with a mix of transadapted, translated, and authentic texts, as well as K-2 Spanish phonics units (Habilidades y Destrezas). 


Eureka Math TEKS Edition is fully aligned with the TEKS and provides rigorous learning through a balance of conceptual understanding, procedural skills and fluency, and application Eureka Math TEKS Edition provides a coherent learning progression from concrete to representational to abstract to help students deepen their understanding of mathematical concepts. Key concepts then connect within and across grade levels to build an enduring understanding of math.
Learn more about these HQIM by visiting TEA Available Materials.
Strong Foundations Implementation Supports provides high-quality professional learning (HQPL) that builds knowledge and skills in high-quality instruction through the instructional materials, includes collaborative learning with other educators implementing the HQIM, and provides learning that is immediately applicable to upcoming instruction. 

HQPL includes asynchronous learning modules with additional supports to extend and apply learning, such as communities of practice or job-embedded supports. HQPL also includes implementation protocols that provide a systematic approach to instructional planning, delivery, evaluation, and reflection. 
HQPL also provides learning for instructional coaches and leaders on conducting observation and feedback cycles using HQIM-specific observation tools, as well as learning for administrators on topics such as ensuring district- and campus-level systems support implementation, leading change management, and monitoring implementation progress.
