Curriculum Management Audits
Through the Texas Curriculum Management Audit Center, TASA offers cost-effective audit services to school districts.
CMAT offerings are conducted both in-person and virtually. In-person trainings are two- or three-day programs offered in Austin at TASA Headquarters. Virtual trainings take a blended approach with instructor and participants meeting Monday/Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday in a single week, and all other learning opportunities taking place independently during that time frame. Please note: All spring 2021 CMAT offerings are being conducted virtually.
