Teacher Incentive Allotment

The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) was created by the Texas Legislature as part of House Bill 3 to provide a realistic pathway for top teachers to earn six-figure salaries and to help attract and retain highly effective teachers at traditionally hard-to-staff schools.

TIA Overview            teacher    

The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) is a key part of House Bill 3, dedicated to recruiting, supporting, and retaining highly effective teaches in all schools, with particular emphasis on high-needs and rural schools.  Districts that choose to participate are charged with developing local teacher designation systems that measure teacher effectiveness based, at a minimum, on both teacher observation and student growth data.  These systems must be submitted to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) for approval and undergo a data validation process, which will be conducted by Texas Tech University.  Developing a local teacher designation system requires significant planning, robust stakeholder engagement, adequate time to prepare all necessary materials for rollout, and a strong communication plan prior to the first implementation year.  The first school year a district collects teacher effectiveness data in accordance with their local designation plan is called the data capture year.  The teacher effectiveness data collected during the data capture year will be reviewed as part of the district approval process.
