Teacher Incentive Allotment Information

Recognition and reward for teaching performance
The Texas Education Agency and the Teacher Incentive Allotment
The Texas Teacher Incentive Allotment TIA is a part of House Bill 3. The Texas legislature wants to have a realistic path to compensate the highest performing teachers at a higher annual salary.  School districts in Texas must submit a Teacher Incentive Allotment application that meets the established eligibility criteria in order to have teachers participate in the TIA Program.  Edinburg CISD is currently a part of TIA Application Cohort E.  The District Site-Based Decision Making Committee is working to submit a TIA application to the Texas Education Agency by the deadline on April 15, 2022. 
Teacher Incentive Allotment Eligibility Criteria
The TEA TIA Application Program requires that school districts establish criteria to ensure that the identification of highly effective teachers fall under the three designation categories – Recognized, Exemplary, and Master. Districts that submit a TIA application to TEA will be expected to use an indicator for student academic growth performance data along with Texas-Teacher Evaluation Support System observation data to determine which teachers qualify for these three designations. Part of the data validation process will include a review of the accuracy of how district systems align their designations to the statewide performance standards. The Texas Education Agency has additional information on the Teacher Incentive Allotment on the tiatexas.org website.
