The Teacher Incentive Allotment has a stated goal of a highly competitive salary for teachers who prioritize teaching in high needs areas and rural district campuses. The program is dedicated to recruiting, supporting and retaining highly effective teachers in all schools, with particular emphasis on high need and rural schools. Districts, if they choose to, can develop a local designation system and designate high-performing teachers (Master, Exemplary or Recognized). Districts will receive additional funding ($3,000-$32,000 per year) for every
designated teacher they employ. The District has an approved TEA Cohort C TIA application and submits teachers for designation each fall. We are proud to report we successfully passed validation last fall resulting in 47 designated teachers in the spring of 2022.
