Teacher Incentive Allotment

Eastland ISD

Teacher Incentive Allotment

The Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) was created by the Texas Legislature in June of 2019, with a stated goal of a six-figure salary for teachers, prioritizing teaching in high needs and rural district campuses. The intent of this initiative is to provide highly effective teachers a pathway to earn more while remaining in the classroom and to help attract and retain highly effective teachers.

Based on a locally-developed and state-approved designation system, teachers will have the opportunity to earn a designation of master, exemplary, or recognized. The two required components to evaluate when recommending teachers for designation are the teacher appraisal system and student growth outcomes. Once earned, the designation is applied to the individual’s teaching certificate and remains valid for five years.

Eastland ISD highly values the time and effort outstanding teachers pour into their assignments, ensuring our students receive the best possible education. We wish to recognize and reward these efforts by providing to our teachers the opportunity to earn a Teacher Incentive Allotment designation.
