Teacher Incentive Allotment Overview

  • Rewarding Teacher Excellence in Texas

    House Bill 3 (HB 3), 86th Legislature, included massive increases for teachers pay. The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) was established by HB 3 with a stated goal of a six-figure salary for effective classroom teachers. TIA allotment funds help Texas school systems reward, retain, and recruit highly effective teachers. The funding formula prioritizes high needs and rural campuses.

    HB 3 established the Teacher Incentive Allotment  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. 

    Teachers earn designations through two different routes. First, National Board Certified (NBC) teachers are eligible to earn a Recognized designation, any certified teacher can work on NBC. Second, districts may designate their effective teachers when they are approved for a local teacher designation system. The approval process is multi-step and includes the submission of a system application to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and then a data validation process through Texas Tech University.

    TIA builds upon the success of past national incentive programs while removing previous barriers to success.
