The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) was funded in House Bill 3 (HB 3) by the 86th Texas Legislature in June 2019. HB 3 established an optional 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. The state hopes to recruit, retain, and reward exceptional teachers through TIA.
For each classroom teacher with a teacher designation under TEC Section 21.3521 employed by a school district, the school district is entitled to an allotment equal to the following applicable base amount increased by the high needs and rural factor as determined below:
(1) $12,000, or an increased amount not to exceed $32,000, for each Master Teacher;
(2) $6,000, or an increased amount not to exceed $18,000, for each Exemplary Teacher; and
The state has indicated that the purpose of this initiative is to provide TIA Designations, and therefore increased compensation, to approximately the top 33% of teachers across the state of Texas.
