Teacher Incentive Allotment

about teacher incentive allotment (tia) in rockdale isd

The TIA is a program created by the Texas Legislature as part of House Bill 3 to provide increased compensation for our most effective teachers and to help attract and retain highly effective teachers at traditionally hard-to-staff schools. TIA will help us to identify top teachers here in Rockdale by looking at a variety of measure, including teacher planning, student learning, and classroom observations. When looked at in combination, these measures will help recognize and retain highly effective teachers, some of whom will be eligible for increased compensation. The exact amount available to each teacher is dependent on a formula determined at the state level, which also takes into account the number of students who are economically disadvantaged.

Rockdale Independent School District (RISD) submitted their Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) - Cohort F application to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) in April 2023. On July 27, 2023, the TEA approved the RISD TIA application.
