Texas at-will substitutes and unemployment

I have been scrolling thru posts and noticed that many of my fellow subs, primarily in California are going to receive unemployment.
However here, nobody knows what to do or what is going on and I have been given conflicting information. As I understand it, at-will employees of a school district cannot receive unemployment in the state of Texas. Am I correct?
I tried calling the TWC, Texas Workforce Commission for help, but they are not answering. On a good day, Texas does not give bovine excrement about education nor it's students, so I should not.be surprised at the way things are going. Does anyone have any insight as to what an at-will Texas substitute should do?
I have posted this question on my districts facebook page, as have many other substitutes. We are given a link to our local grocery store saying they are in "dire need" of help?

I would just apply. All they can do is say no. I wouldn't look to your district for help. They are too busy for us.

In PA the form seems designed to keep subs from collecting anything.

Subman, there isn't an option for PA to select yourself as Teacher-Other? In NJ, it listed Teacher Asst., K-12 Teacher, and Teacher - Other. Then, there was a question asking if workplace closed due to COVID-19, but still technically employed/not working. For NJ, the questionairre seemed to be designed specifically for COVID-19 unemployment.

I didn't know what to put, so I put classified sub. It didn't even have an "other.". It seems to have worked, though I still haven't received any cash.

You have nothing to lose by enrolling in unemployment. I would go ahead and do it now.

Do it now, before you get the usual 'reasonable assurance of work' letter.

Do you substitute teach through a staffing company? If you do then you may want to contact them, or look at for unemployment information on their website. I substitute teach for Edustaff, and they sent me an email telling me that I may qualify for unemployment. The email also included information that I might need to file, including their Unemployment Insurance ID#, address, etc.

I also substitute teach for PCMI, and noticed that the only email they sent me was on tips on prevention tips to avoid the virus, but they didn't mention anything about me being able to file for unemployment. So if PCMI was my only company, I still may not have known that I could file.
