Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) Support


House Bill 3 (HB 3), passed by the 86th Texas Legislature in June of 2019, established a Teacher Incentive Allotment with a stated goal of a six-figure salary for teachers who prioritize teaching in high needs areas and rural district campuses.

Districts have the option to locally develop or identify a system for designating high-performing teachers as Recognized, Exemplary, or Master. Districts that employ teachers with designations can receive up to $32,000 per year in TIA funding per designated teacher.

TEA will send an invitation to all districts and teachers that can be found in the National Board database and would appreciate your support in identifying any others.  NBCTs are encouraged to attend with a district administrator.
