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 her 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. You can learn more at tiatexas.org.
Rockdale ISD will spend the 2023-2024 school year gathering teacher performance data to submit to Texas Tech University, TEA's partner in this statewide project. By April 2025, TEA will notify Rockdale ISD of final designation and allotment. By September 2025, funds will be issued to eligible teachers.
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.
