Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA)

What is the Teacher Incentive Allotment?
HB 3 established the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) to recognize effective teachers on three different levels: Recognized, Exemplary and Master. These teacher designations generate additional teacher-focused allotment funding for districts in order for them to reward their top performers.
How the Teacher Incentive Allotment Works
Icon Icon Icon Icon Icon Icon
Districts can develop a local designation system and designate high-performing teachers (Master, Exemplary, or Recognized) TEA will approve local designation systems, in partnership with Texas Tech University.  Districts are not required to create a local designation system. All Texas school systems can employ designated teachers and receive allotment funds.  Districts will receive additional funding ($3-32K per year) for every designated teacher they employ.  District will receive greater funding for designated teachers who teach at rural and/or high-needs campuses.  At least 90% of TIA funds must be used on teacher compensation on the campus where the designated teacher(s) works.
